These relatively new fonts that have been published in the past 6 – 8 weeks, and are designed to be well suited for web as well for print, in particular for the use in headlines, logo and flyer designs.
Among other things, effective typography manages to achieve three necessary objectives of designing are look, appearance and outcome which helps you to stand out from the crowds. To communicate effectively, typography requires appropriate, readable and high-quality typefaces.
The main priority in selecting these fonts for this collection was the readability, diversity in weights and styles, number of characters or a specific reason to use this font for e.g. headlines or in Poster designs. So let’s cut the crap and show you some fresh font goodness ..

Metropolis comes from the the industrial movement of the 1920′s where skyscrapers where born. Greatly inspired by the double line work of Twin by Mark El-Khatib, I wanted to create my own Art Deco style font using this technique. The result is a bold, bumptious typeface with a stolidly calm disposition.

Alegreya (12 styles)
Alegreya is a typeface originally intended for literature. Among its crowning characteristics, it conveys a dynamic and varied rhythm which facilitates the reading of long texts. The italic has just as much care and attention to detail in the design as the roman. The bold weights are strong, and the Black weights are really experimental for the genre. This is the Small Caps sister family that complements the master Alegreya family.
Not only does Alegreya provide great performance, but also achieves a strong and harmonious text by means of elements designed in an atmosphere of diversity.

Intro free font (2 styles)
What distinguishes the new Intro free font from FontFabric is the strongly expressed geometric makeup and structure. The basic letters of the Alphabet like “A”, “O” and “H” are built or based on principles of simple geometric forms – triangles, circles and squares. In contrast to the Futura font which possesses similar styling, the Intro font preserves the characteristic sharpened edges of the “А”, “V” and “W” letters even in it’s boldened form.

Diplomata – Free Google Web Font (1 style)
Its style, similar to Bodoni, has a remarkable degree of horizontal expansion; a weight which indicates verticality; areas between serif and stem softened by a curve connecting them, and the light in the main stroke of each glyph is a detail that lightens up and gives prominence to Diplomata. It is a distinct typeface, ideal for composing headlines and small prestigious pieces of text.
To improve and expand the use of Diplomata, it was necessary to create small caps and a lower case, which ended up constituting this family that has two variables today.
