Font of the Week: Libertine

libertine

Based on 19th century slab-serif fontfaces such as the reknown Clarendon, Libertine combines the strict lines and sharp edges of contemporary typefaces with a hint of post-modern irony and whimsy. The font was designed by Alexander Lubovenko and released by ParaType in 2015, and carries the same Russian influenced aesthetic of his previous projects.

The typeface is characterized by thick stems that culminate in a fun kicked up serif. Available in six weights, and boasting a range of linguistic options, the typeface lends itself to a multitude of uses from signage to text. Currently, the entire font family is available on myfonts for under $50, and can be licensed for many types of usage, including web and print. Find it here.
