Some of these new fonts also come in more styles, so you can easily embed these fonts in your web designs or use them as a corporate typeface. As always, 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.
