Brothers is a typeface designed by John Downer and released through Emigre in 1999. The design was inspired by lettering found on The Cole Brothers traveling circus shows from the early 1900s. Brothers contains a special “Word Logos” style that includes specially designed words like “and”, “for”, “with”, and “No”, which add a retro nostalgia making this font associated with “hipster” design.
Based on font usage data on Typewolf, as well as site submissions designers have been sending me lately, these are the 10 fonts that I predict will be hot in 2019. When you subscribe to my weekly type roundup newsletter, I’ll send you a free PDF with a list of my predictions.
