February was an active month for many typefoundries, like Latinotype which released 3 typefaces this month: Showcase (beautiful script font), Australis and Ride My Bike Serif. Ride My Bike Serif as the name says is a variant of the original Ride My Bike, it’s curious how this month other designers released variants of previous typefaces: Kermel Serif, Pacific Northwest, Lust Slim and Core Magic were examples of this trend on the month. Others designers decide to launch all the variants of a typeface at the same time, this is the case of the family Bandera (original, text and display), which by the way, was also released this month.
If we should choose 3 winners of the month for best typefaces (based on sales, aesthetics and personal taste), we go for this guys:
