Laura Guardalabene's Favorite Five Typefaces

Austin, TX-based designer Laura Guardalabene proposes these favorite fonts in 2017. She has a preference for warm, Latin, and strong, muscular typefaces.

  • Taberna (Rodrigo Fuenzalida). Laura writes: Like an avocado, Taberna is extremely versatile. Go for savory with its vintage inspired serif font or something a little sweet with its playful, monoline, handwritten script typeface.
  • Papelli (Alisa Nowak and Julie Soudanne). Laura says: This curvy yet structured font reminds me of lettering you'd see above the awning of a French café. It's sandwiched perfectly in between a sans serif and script typeface making it the tomato of the type world.
  • FF DIN (Albert-Jan Pool). Laura writes: For the meat and potatoes guy or gal. This fluff-less font gets right to the point. Clean and utilitarian, the FF DIN family is all about satisfying the appetite of readability. This works just as well in print as it does on the web. Plus, it looks great in all caps.
  • Gilroy (Radomir Tinkov). Laura: The Gilroy typeface is great for large blocks of copy and its heavy weight packs a punch when used as a large display font. I especially love how Gilroy Light looks paired with Rockwell Bold.
  • Rockwell (Frank Hinman Pierpont). Laura: I like my slab serif fonts like I like my slabs of steak. Thick and well balanced. The Rockwell collection is a smart and professional typeface family that stands the test of time.
