Hoefler’s Diversity at Ringside
If you’re a boxing fan, you know that sitting ringside is the best seat in the house. Hoefler & Co. is taking that into the typeface arena with the new family Ringside. 172 font styles make this the foundry’s largest type family. “Designed for diversity instead of homogeneity, Ringside brings to the modern superfamily some of the charming individuality of the potluck sans serif.”
Launched Feb. 1, “the Ringside family comprises three different kinds of fonts. The multipurpose Ringside fonts, designed for print, include 96 styles: six widths, each in eight weights, each in Roman and italic. For the web, the companion Ringside ScreenSmart collection has been specially designed and engineered for the screen, with 60 styles comprised of six widths, each in five weights, each in Roman and italic. For business users, there is Ringside Office, four packages optimized for use in business applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel.”
