I have a new favorite font! Monroe by Daniel Hernandez is a contemporary, lightweight slab serif, equally at home making a splash on the pages of websites as it is in printed publications like magazines and catalogs.
It offers a broad scale of typographic possibilities thanks to its plethora of alternate lettershapes, ligatures and swashed upper- and lowercase variants.
Monroe’s generous horizontal width makes makes it an excellent selection for headlines, music packaging, brochures, posters, logos and more.
With a little OpenType magic — its flamboyant flourishes and swashes set it apart from its contemporaries in the modern slab genre.
