Because the modern era of design draws on so many past traditions, it's hard to nail down
a selection of fonts and label them as essentially modern. To research our modern fonts collection we looked
at nightclub posters from the 80s and 90s, popular advertising of the period, and tried to pick out fonts which
fit the design styles of that period or were based on hand lettering from that period. The result is an eclectic
set of 12 fonts which have the look and feel of the last decade and a half or so.
The fonts in this collection are basically poster fonts, intended for designing display advertising,
posters, leaflets and flyers. They include some classic designs with a modern feel and some entirely new designs
unique to the period. Dromon and Eglantine are actually based on designs of the Art Nouveau period, but ones
which have resurfaced and gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Hamilton has the classic look of movie
poster titles. Fortinbras has a strong commercial art look. Oblivion, Squiffy, Cosmic Dude and Ducatus Rough are all inspired
by nightclub poster lettering. Ascelon has a modern look and seemed like just the text font the collection needed. Bilitis is there
because we needed a brush script style and it's our most modern looking one. It's a strange mix, but definitely
in the modern mode.
Several of the fonts are new releases, specially for this package. Ducatus Rough, Cosmic Dude, Oblivion and
Ekberg were put out just to make our selection of modern fonts more complete. You haven't seen them before and you won't find them in any of our other packages.
For a limited time the Modern Fonts collection is available at an introductory price of only $39.

To get an idea of what our Modern fonts are like, try out
the demo version of our latest one, Cosmic Dude. It doesn't have all of the
punctuation and variant characters, but should give you a good feel for the font.
Cosmic Dude is based on hand-drawn poster lettering. It has a super-heavy, irregular look with
variant characters which fit together remarkably well to producea a sort of interlacing effect. The full version includes a large selection of variant character
forms and special characters. Click here to download the working trial version
