"Organic" humanist sans serif typeface

Dan B.'s picture

Hi again,

I'm on a (rather quick) quest for a quirky/organic humanist sans serif in a heavy weight. The word I'm setting is "Coffey," so bonus points for a nice ff ligature.

On my list:
Hypatia Sans (if I can figure out where to buy it)
Lapidaria Sans
FF Advert
FF Scala

Of all these, Candara is closest to what I'm looking for, but doesn't have a heavy enough weight. Beorcana would be the other, but it might be too "quirky" for this particular job.

Help! :)

On the left Agilita, on the right Finnegan.

Perhaps you'd like to consider our Giacomo 2.0:

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. I'm adding Urbana, Agilita and Giacomo to the list.

Here's what I particularly like in Candara, and what I'm looking for (but in a heavier weight).

Both FF Legato (Bold, it’s quite dark) or FF Balance (Black) by Evert Bloemsma should fit the bill, although as far as I can tell neither has an ff ligature.

Didn't know about Productus. Legato also fits the bill nicely. Thanks, Florian and Antonio.

Still undecided, but getting closer. My favorites so far: Legato, Productus, Candara, Beorcana.

ITC Mixage by Novarese is an older font that has flaring strokes.

Hey Craig: good call on Mixage, I haven’t seen it used much and it’s a face that I have always thought had been severely underexposed.

Nice one, Nick! (Italics coming anytime soon?)

I haven't even thought of doing them, so no, not anytime soon.

does Chianti go heavy enough for you?

and you should be able to buy Hypatia Sans here.

Yes, Chianti fits. (Thanks for the Hyaptia link as well.)
