Designing a typeface is a wildly difficult process, and to actually come out at the end with something attractive takes an extreme amount of skill and patience.
Type design may not be for everyone, but typography is, and nearly every designer works with it daily. This is why Type Release creator Sean Mitchell is here to share with you another list of gorgeous typefaces, all of which were released last month. See his findings, only on TNW:
