Idler—Modular Typeface Family
This new typeface from Lamesville and availible on You Work For Themcomes in six different weights that can be layered up and colored to create interesting styles and effect. This well animated video walks you through three examples of how the font can be used.
Idler is an all caps, modular display typeface meant to be used for big, bold lettering. Idler’s two “main” weights (Idler Detail and Idler Plain) can be used effectively as single colored layers on their own, but the typeface’s true potential is realized when the user layers the “shaded” weights along with the main weights to create a colorful 3D shading effect. The Idler family contains six weights all together: Idler Detail, Idler Plain, Idler Inner, Idler Highlight, Idler Shadow, & Idler Solid.
