The Atacama typeface name is derived from “El desierto de Atacama” located in South America. The typeface’s horizontal crossbars, peeks and humanist curves convey a more organic structure and approach to type design. A typeface of the Garalde classification, this font transports the reader between thick and thin strokes, bracketed serif and beautifully curved droplets accentuate a natural softness and strength that evoke the Atacama landscape, and wilderness. The Antarctica typeface name is derived from the Earths southernmost continent and hemisphere. With a timeless Neo-Grotesques contemporary approach this typeface will stand the test of time, much like the majestic Arctic. Amazonia’s powerful contrast between thick and thin strokes, make it ideal for print use in body text, such as book printing, magazines and newspapers. With its many variable possibilities, this typeface aspires to be the Didot archetype font in your personal font catalogue. The name Alaska derives from the Aleut word Alaxsxaq, also spelled Alyeska, meaning mainland. With minimal contrast and even widths, this font is perfect for logo design and branding projects. This geometric archetype font and its endless variable possibilities can be used all throughout one single project and would be a great addition to your personal font catalog.
newglyph’s mission is to help protect our planet. Their essential fonts Atacama, Antarctica, Amazonia, Alaska are made for the reason of supporting and spreading change.
