Lately I’ve been crushing on the Roboto Condensed font and using it in a few of my working designs. I love how many variations are available, as well as the way it looks in all caps. (Of course, right? =) I’m not even going to try to rewrite google’s description of Roboto Condensed, because it’s pretty much spot on:
“Roboto has a dual nature. It has a mechanical skeleton and the forms are largely geometric. At the same time, the font features friendly and open curves. While some grotesks distort their letterforms to force a rigid rhythm, Roboto doesn’t compromise, allowing letters to be settle in to their natural width. This makes for a more natural reading rhythm more commonly found in humanist and serif types.”
If you’re looking for a new (free!) font to spice up your website or blog, definitely check this one out!
