Other Notable Typefaces 2014

Typeface Review

Other Notable Font Releases of 2014

Reviewed by Stephen Coles on March 19, 2015

The typefaces below are among the thousands of 2014 releases that didn’t make this year’s Favorites list. Think of this collection as a sort of “editor’s picks”. These are the typefaces that I personally felt were worthy of selection — they just didn’t happen to be among the writers’ favorites.

The name of the face is followed by the designer, and then (when applicable) the name of the foundry/publisher.
