Weekly Combo: Tungsten + Archer & Tungsten + Acropolis

tungsten & acropolis

I know I post a lot of older typefaces and their combinations. This week I’ve looked at some newer weights of Tungsten from Hoeffler & Frere-Jones that were just released. There are a couple of interesting combinations from two other typefaces in their library: Archer and Acropolis. The clean and condensed letterforms create a perfect foil for many typefaces, but Acropolis’s bold weight and heavy slab serifs form a nice contrast to the extra light weight of Tungsten. Archer’s curvilinear letterforms contrast well with the rectilinear forms of Tungsten.
