Darden’s New Website Unloads Big Freight

Written by Typographica on August 7, 2005

Freight BigHoefler & Frere-Jones alum Joshua Darden has launched a new home for his personal design studio. Up front and center is Freight Big, a titling addition to his long-awaited super-family that was set free by GarageFonts in June. Even before its release, Freight (Text, Sans, and Micro) was billed as “an impressive array of related typefaces” and it’s certainly GarageFonts’ most mature production to date.

Unveiled along with the 100+pt-sized Freight Big is a variant for regular headline use: Freight Display. You can’t buy either of these delicate cuts yet, so we’ll be forced to linger and salivate once again. Also on display on the site is Darden’s interesting custom work for W Magazine and Meta Headline.

What’s next? Among other projects, Darden is working on completing his bubbly Omnes for the fledgling Village type collective.
