I'm in the market for contemporary fonts that have a central european character set. Sans, serif, and display. Wouldst thou know any my malenky typo droogs?

thanks tim -- found that one. The new black display weights have a striking resemblance to Freight.

We need posters with solid magenta and yellow avatars :)

The resemblance is moreso in the serif (especially italics), the sans is more grot than the Gillish Freight Sans.

There are many CE fonts in the FontFont library and over 1300 on MyFonts. Maybe you can tell us more about your project and we can help you narrow it down.

The fontfont library is not the most easily searched database I have to say.

We are designing a new newspaper, and so the serif will nestle tightly together with shortish asc/desc. This could potentially also work for the headline weight, but all options are open right now. The same is the case with the sans. Cheers!

No one really lets you search by language options except for MyFonts. That's a fine feature, for sure.

I highly recommend Fresco for your project which is available as in OT Pro fonts.

MyFonts currently lists over 1370 families with CE support.

To look for Central European fonts on MyFonts, go to:
http://www.myfonts.com/International#ce

There, click on "Central Europe" and then on "Search for fonts containing Central Europe characters".

To fine-tune the search go to
http://www.myfonts.com/search

There, click on "Fonts" and choose "Central Europe" as character set. Optionally, you can filter the results by entering some keyword (e.g. "sans") or selecting a particular foundry (e.g. URW++, ParaType, Elsner+Flake, Storm, Linotype, Ascender, DSType, Flat-it, P22, to name a few that have larger offerings of CE fonts).

Regards,
Adam

Update: MyFonts has just updated their entire Linotype offering, including over 450 Linotype families with Central European characters (100 new families and 350 families in which the CE support was added). This gives the total of almost 1,800 families that support CE on MyFonts. It’s a great day for European customers!
