Typefaces designed by Darden:

  • Index (Garage, with Tim Glaser), review by Fred Showker).
  • Birra Stout (2008): a free chunky beer label font. Followed by Birra Bruin (2019, by Elena Schneider at darden Studio): a German expressionist typeface.
  • Jubilat (2008). Darden writes: Commissioned by Michael Picon for First; further development underwritten by Tatler Asia&La Semaine. Recipient of a Type Directors Club award as Untitled. Jubilat explores the history of the slab serif in six weights, with generous curves and efficient spacing in both dimensions. Its large lowercase and high contrast make it suitable for headlines, decks, and sidebars.
  • Bergamot (under development).
  • Profundis (1999, with Timothy Glaser; Profundis andd Profundis Sans in three styles each, all accompanied by Ornaments).
  • Vittoria.
  • OUT (Garage, with Tim Glaser).
  • Grosvenor.
  • Firth.
  • di Valzer.
  • Hauteur.
  • Cassandra.
  • GarageFont.
  • HolyCalliope (1999, with Timothy Glaser).
  • Omnes (2005, Village). This has a hairline weight.

  • Locus.
  • Interact (Garage).
  • Freight (2004-2009, Garage): an extensive, all-round family of typefaces including Freight Micro, Freight Sans, Freight Micro, Freight Display, Freight Big, and Freight Text versions. The slab serif, sans and serif versions are related and derived from each other, in some cases, by snap-on technology (in the spirit of Thesis or Scala or Nexus). In 2005, Freight Big (the heavier styles are high-contrast didones) and Freight Display were added. Freight Sans Condensed Pro followed in 2012 and Freight Sans Compressed Pro in 2015. Freight Micro Pro (2009) was specifically created for use in phone books and small size applications. Freight Macro Pro is more suited for corporate branding. Review by John Berry. Freight Neo Pro (a humanist sans) was published in 2013. In 2015, he offered the the free font Freight Big Bold (2005) via Open Font Library. Freight Round Pro was added in 2016. Finally, in 2017, Freight moved to Type Network.
