Mercury is a serif typeface family designed by Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones. It was the product of nine years of research and development by H&FJ. Mercury is unique in that it’s available in four “grades.” The grades have the same width but are progressively darker in color. This was originally created for different newspaper printing needs, however, it could be useful in digital contexts as well.
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.
