With the release of all serif variants, we are proud to now offer the full Freight Series by Joshua Darden as one of the most extensive contemporary type series available for the web. Freight’s four size-specific designs — Big, Display, Text and Micro — and their sans-serif companions, each in six weights with distinct italics, add up to a total of 72 styles, making Freight an exeptionally comprehensive system for a wide variety of applications.
While the Text styles are suitable for mid-range reading sizes, the Display styles feature increased stroke contrast and finer details adapted for headlines and display typography. The Big styles with their even tighter spacing and sharpness shine in the very largest uses — the bigger the better. At the other end of the spectrum are the Micro styles with their coarse, exaggerated traits and sturdy shapes for better performance at small font sizes. Although not quite the design intention, try Freight Micro for large sizes, too, as the chunky forms become interestingly expressive and striking in headlines. The sans-serif styles complement the set with their adaptable, unobstrusive appearance.
As with all fonts on Webtype, the Freight families can be tested free of charge for 30 days. For more details, see the Freight webfont pages.
