New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking to get 'up-to-date' regarding sans-serif typefaces and was wondering if anyone could give me a general overview of what's happening at the moment, particularly with geometric/neo grotesque styles.
I have got to a point where I am familiar with the majority of 'classic' faces (i.e. Helvetica, Univers, Futura etc). I now want to start using something a bit more contemporary. The problem is I don't really know where to start - I am aware of most of the major foundries and have looked at a few faces I've heard of such as FF Bau, Calibre, Graphik, and Brown, but am concerned I may be missing something very obvious, or should be considering some other options.
Is there anything that's been released in the past few years that really stands out? Can anyone provide a semi-decent list of faces I should be looking at?
