Font specialists Monotype are releasing two fresh typefaces today. Designed to be used digitally and in print, as small or display text, the legible fonts have a focus on logo design. Both Unitext and Madera are sans serif designs, specifically created with modern brands in mind. Both typefaces can be found in Monotype’s new cloud-based font platform, Mosaic, in MyFonts or through the Monotype library subscription.

Simplistic and compact, this typeface – designed by Hendrik Weber – allows room for creative freedom and diverse application, so a brand’s 'natural voice' can shine through. It’s a blend of grotesque and humanist styles and offers a balance of condensed spacing with open counters, making it a good choice for both logos and text.

Unitext is available in seven weights, plus italics.

Slightly more demanding of attention, Malou Verlomme’s typeface is a geometric sans design with humanistic traits, marked by its pointy apexes. Designed for high-tech and publishing, with an emphasis on logos and signage, Madera is a clean and straightforward typeface.

Madera is available in eight weights, plus italics, It also includes characters frequently used by graphic designers such as arrows, circled numbers, diamond dots and punctuation.
