About The Freight CollectionThe Freight Collection

Originally drawn in 2005 by Joshua Darden and expanded several times over, the Freight superfamily of typefaces is renowned for its historical innovation and ongoing popularity. As Jan Middendorp put it in Shaping Text: “with the Freight suite, Joshua Darden took a radical approach to designing for optical size. Letterpress’s subtle difference between the various body sizes have been translated into boldly drawn, hugely different variants with pronounced size-related characteristics. Freight turns the traditional ‘natural’ gradations of contrast and width into a conscious stylistic device.
