Looking for a nice sophisticated font that has a natural earthy feel. Kinda like this one.
When you want to be all things to all people, look for an oxymoron.
Sophisticated and earthy seem like opposites; like a tuxedo and bib overalls. Perhaps you could explain further.
Sumner Stone has some fonts that are both sophisticated and earthy. But they look nothing like that.
"Kinda like this one" would be like ... American Typewriter, or Archer? There're a couple of threads on here that list alternatives to those (Google helps)
Sorry for the vague description. I meant natural/earthy like the example shown in the op. I'll try out the ones mentioned. Thank you for your help.
I can't really find the natural/earthy-ness of the example, but it's all perception I suppose.
If you like the type in your OP, listen to Sebastian. If you like the idea of having true sophistication with an earthy tone, listen to Dunwich.
By oxymoron, I mean types which combine contradictory principles.
Humanist sans faces, for instance, which marry the clean, reductive, mechanical ethos of the unadorned monoline with something of the quality of hand-made lettering. But finding the balance is up to you. A new humanist sans, from Shinntype, Sensibility.
Another of my oxymorons, Bodoni Egyptian.
