Did another month just pass us by already? Guess that means it’s time for yet another round of beautiful typefaces from this past April. Check these out!

Jessica Hische: Silencio Sans


The name Silencio references silent films, but this font would feel as at home in magazines, invitations and fancy food packaging as it does on the silver screen.

Trial By Cupcakes: Quickpen


Quickpen is casual and carefree, designed to recreate the look of confident, quickly jotted script with a felt tip pen or brush.

Los Andes: Darwin


Darwin is an eclectic assembly of grotesque, geometric and humanistic styles.

Grilli Type: GT Sectra


A contemporary serif typeface combining the calligraphy of the broad nip pen with the sharpness of the scalpel.

Lettersoup: Ropa Sans Pro


While the upright styles pay a distant homage to the technical aesthetics of the early–20th century DIN series, the strongly humanistic italics breathe in quirky freshness and create a unique flavor.

dooType: Bommer Slab


A strong personality that makes it perfect for use in headline sizes, but it also works gracefully within text blocks.

Commercial Type: Gabriello


Gabriello is slanted on two axes, both horizontally and vertically, giving the energy of a script without causing production problems.

Cultivated Mind: Ciao Bella


Ciao Bella pairs the funky elegance of a hand–drawn copperplate script with four ornament fonts.

Calderón Estudio Type Foundry: Risotto Script


Risotto Script represents the texture, sound, smell and flavor of food.

Production Type: Cogito


Initially designed as a personal remix of mechanically engineered typefaces, Cogito has all the clarity of its models but with a calmer tone.

Type Dynamic: Lasiver


Lasiver is a simple and dynamic family with seven weights and corresponding italics.

FaceType: Adria Slab


Adria Slab is a stylish slab–serif that comes in seven weights and charming upright italics.

Typotheque: Neutral


Neutral explores how the absence of stylistic associations.

Lián Types: Heroe


Heroe — its classy style makes the font perfect for a wide range of uses.

Latinotype: DSari


DSari is inspired by the friendliness and cordiality of neo–humanist typefaces.

Schizotype: Range Sans


Range Sans has a contemporary, somewhat geometric look that lends itself to uses such as corporate identities, minimalist graphic design and logos.

Tart Workshop: Bookeyed Martin


Bookeyed Martin is the much anticipated addition to the popular Bookeyed family.

Monotype: Burlingame


Burlingame is a sturdy typeface with open, clear shapes that offer high legibility.

Aerotype: Arbordale


Arbordale communicates with casual confidence — a calligraphic script with roots in the midwest.

Insigne: Cabrito Sans


Cabrito Sans is a laid back, rounded sans–serif alternative served up over easy.
