There is a new article on ilovetypography.com talking about Ludwig Übele’s FF Tundra. Well worth the read just to get a designer’s interpretation of what makes a good text face. Extremely handsome typeface in my opinion, and I love the name too – tundra is a beautiful word (don’t ask me why though, I’ve always liked it)
fontsinuse.com is amazing food for though on the subject of ‘typography fit for purpose’. Either look at designs and judge for yourself or look up how specific typefaces are used.
