Hey and welcome to issue 24 👋
Well sorry for the little delay. But sometimes I like to completely enjoy my weekend without any digital media interruption. That is the reason why you receive this newsletter today and not on Sunday. Also, I would like to tell you that I will take a little break. Since I am leaving for vacation on Thursday there will be no new newsletter on Sunday this week. But no worries, I am gathering already all the cool stuff for the next issue. So have a nice day!
If you have recommendations or feedback, drop me a mail or a tweet. For now, enjoy the newsletter! 😊🙌

Typeface of the week
Radial is an emotionally charged geometric-turned-humanist sans serif of 5 weights and infinite variable sub-instances. It’s informal geometry and wide span of tonal variety spreads over conventional barriers of traditional sans-serif typography. It resonates in a dramatic personality range, that performs flawlessly on both muscular display and small font sizes. The variable font support comes naturally to it as it’s fundamental geometry principles are built upon motion in mind. Weight and slant are two variation axes that can be controlled simultaneously in the variable version.
Till next time! 👋
