Cutting edge fonts?
0

One of my students has just asked me "Can't you show me 5-6 new, cutting edge fonts that really kick a..". I was just in the middle of a lecture on classic typography and my first answer was "duh... I'll get back to you on that one".

Could you help me out with a few fonts?

Thanx!

What for? So that he (the student) knows what to use to do cutting edge design?

Our favourite typefaces of 2008, for example. They go back to 2006, I think.

By the time you told them, those typefaces would already have lost their edge...

You should have them clarify exactly what "cutting edge" means to them, because the interpretation of that is too vague.

[[http://typophile.com/node/41687|Cut/Curved Counter]] typefaces are kind of cutting edge (literally)
