5 unique typefaces to try in your next design

As a graphic designer, I’m always on the lookout for beautiful typefaces to add to my typography collection and wishlist.

Below are just a few of my favourites.

1. Macula

First up, I love Macula - the impossible typeface, created by Fonthausen and originally designed for a design pitch.

The family consists of four styles, each built with opentype features like contextual ligatures, stylistic alternates and extended kerning.

2. Domaine Display

This wonderful display typeface, Domaine Display by Klim, was designed as a descendant of the Hardy's logo (which Kris Sowersby designed under the direction of Adelaide-based design studio, Parallax).

3. Carolyna Pro Black

Carolyna Pro Black is a beautiful scripty display typeface designed by Emily Conners.

I love the thicks and thins and the swashes that make this font really feminine!

4. Narziss

I love this gorgeous serif, Narziss designed by Hubert Jocham.

It features lovely embellishments that don't distract from the overall readability, and which bring a sophistication to the situation.

5. Landmark

I love this typeface designed by Hoefler & Frere-Jones.

Featuring 4 styles with an architectural theme, Landmark was designed for one of New York's most significant buildings - Lever House.
