Tondo

FontShop just released a new font called Tondo by Dalton Maag. It comes it 3 weights (Light, Regular, Bold) as well a condensed version. I have soft spot for round faces (I need to use them more) and Tondo is reminiscent of the exceptional face VAG.

    I like it, although I would prefer Omnes. It’s very closely related to the rounded sans-serif faces, it bears just a tad more imperfections (as well as weights and accompanying italics). Otherwise, keep up the great work!

    Marc, never seen Omnes before. It’s nice but I’m not sure about the curls on some of the characters. The lighter weights are very nice.

    Marc,

    I do like Omnes, however if I was in the market for rounded sans serif type, I would have to sit with Tondo, due to the file format. Unless there is an Open Type option I’m not seeing.

  • I’m a fan of Dalton’s typefaces but this like most of their typefaces carries a rather hefty price tag!

    David I only just realised that you don’t have to buy it as a set of 4. How slow am I? 😉
