People of the 20th century thought that in the future we will wear multifunctional costumes, eat vitamins and fly on the weekend into the outer space. We can watch it in old sci-fi books and films. Indeed, it’s quite funny to understand how retro-futuristic forecasts were far from the reality. In fact they are even contrary to these views, because we, people of future, who invented high technologies and internet, have a certain reference before the aesthetics of the previous century. This appears in fashion, in art etc. And of course, in web design: vintage is still in trend, however being influenced by other more fresh tendencies such as skeuomorphism.
Typography, the considerable part of web design, is not the exception. Not so long ago, in the 2000’s, there was a boom of handwritten fonts. Now the fashion leans toward more severe typewriter-like fonts, which bring a strong oldschool flavor to the style in addition to skeuomorphic associations with typewriting process, sound of chattering keys, smell of paper and oil. Well, I think you know all of these once you are on this page. So I won’t drag the feet, and would like to represent the best typewrite-like fonts existing on the web.
