FreightText and FreightSans opinion

Recommended Posts


Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone has used any fonts from the Freight Collection (Joshua Darden) for any printed design? I used it in a recent project, and whilst I really liked it to begin with - and the available weights and styles - I'm now struggling to work out if I like the finished printed result. I used FreightText Pro Book for the body copy - and found that it printed quite lightly. It is also set quite narrowly compared to other fonts I've used in the past and I'm not sure if it reads as nicely as I was hoping. I often turn to Calluna for magazines which generally is a lot rounder. I also used FreightSans Pro Book for most of the sidebar copy, though tested out FreightSans Pro Med on one of the spreads - which prints out better than the book version. I spent a long time considering fonts - and was convinced this was the one to go with - and I'm hoping it still is!

Anyone with experience of this and their insights would be most welcomed


Many thanks in advance
