Today we present fonts specifically optimized for larger sizes such as headlines and titles. Check out these three new variants of existing OurType families, finely crafted by master type designers Fred Smeijers and Peter Mohr.

Fred Smeijers, legendary author of Counterpunch and designer of fine typefaces, has added a “display” version of his classic Dutch transitional serifed typeface Arnhem. Best at the very largest sizes for headings and titles, Arnhem Display adds class and authority to any web site.

Arnhem Fine is designed to be great for smaller headings and other sizes in between big headings and body text. It bridges the gap between Arnhem and Arnhem Display.

 

OurType Fayon Grande

OurType Fayon Grande

Fayon Grande by Peter Mohr is the larger-size counterpart to the previously-released Fayon Pro. For web purposes, Fayon Grande is ideal for the largest size headlines and titles, while even the regular Fayon should go no smaller than subheadings. Fayon is a refined “modern” typeface in the tradition of Didot and Bodoni (hence another name for the classification, “Didone”). Where Fayon departs from its Didone ancestors, it adds slightly playful, yet still elegant touches to letterforms that might otherwise be stiff and formal: look at the terminals on the “r,” “j” and “y,” or the fascinating shapes of the italic “x” and “z,” for example.
