Sharp Grotesk is a sans-serif typeface designed by Lucas Sharp and released through Sharp Type in 2017. The design was inspired by nineteenth century wood type combined with Adrian Frutiger’s technical design process. The family is available in a massive collection of 21 widths and seven weights, most with italics, for a total of 249 fonts. Sharp has plans to release the family as a variable font in the future to make it easier to work with the huge variety of available styles on the web.
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.
