    Very nice set, thanks. Fertigo is one of my favorites. Although it could be seen as the least pro one.

    I’m going to text Chunk and Kontrapunkt – especially the last one seems to be great. And I love Aller! It looks so friendly and modern :-)

    Aller is indeed very professional font, made by Bruno Maag from Dalton Maag. It’s designed for The Graphic Arts Institute of Denmark’s new visual identity, and as part of the EULA it’s free for a year I think. The Kontrapunkt font is made by a frim called Kontrapunkt which is recognized as having the best font designers in Denmark;)

    So they do indeed look profesional;)

    I was wondering if maybe WDL would do a list of fonts to avoid? You know, like ones that are rip-offs of other fonts, have bad spacing, characters missing, etc. ? Could be useful!

    I think Fertigo and ALLER SANS hearken back to the old letterpress days… Fontin, too…

    good choices

    Is Romeral free for commercial use? The designer doesn’t make it clear on his (abandoned) blog and there’s no contact info for him.
