30 Brilliant Typefaces For Corporate Design

Designing a beautiful, legible typeface is hard work and takes time and patience. The type family has to convey a message clearly and effectively, regardless of the setting in which it is used. Of course, thousands of freely available fonts are out there, and some free fonts are very impressive. Yet only a few free fonts manage to beat the look and feel of a carefully designed professional typeface, one that has been painstakingly developed over years with a close attention to tiny details.

We looked around and researched recently released corporate typefaces that have been frequently recommended, mentioned or discussed on popular typography-related blogs, forums and magazines. In the end, we came up with a list of the most promising corporate typefaces and collected information about each of them. The result is this comprehensive showcase of typefaces, together with links to specimens and pricing information.

Below, you'll find 35 brilliant new typefaces for corporate design. Please note that they are not free, but we've focused on typefaces that are definitely worth spending money on. This showcase should serve as a great reference for professional designers looking for some fresh, beautiful typefaces for their corporate projects.

Typography Keyboard Layout: Download Now!

In January we commissioned Ilya Birman, a Russian designer with passion for typography, to adapt his typography keyboard layout (which has become a common typographer's tool in Russia) to create a version for English-speaking designers, artists and, of course, typographers across the globe.

The main idea was to provide the web design community with a handy tool that would let designers enter characters that are usually unavailable on a keyboard easier and quicker. If you already tried to enter such words like naïve or résumé or used special symbols (trademark symbol ™) or pay attention to diacritics (en-dash, em-dash, hyphen etc.), you probably know what we mean.

In this post we release the Typography Keyboard Layout – a simple, yet useful tool that lets you enter characters that are usually unavailable on a keyboard with ease. Hopefully it will help you to achieve better typography in your designs.

We asked our Twitter followers to participate in our beta-testing. And after we received a lot of positive feedback, we implemented some of your suggestions in the final version.
