+$Good news for the modern graphic designer and typographer. From tattoos to global branding schemes, choice of typeface has never been more important.

+$There is now more freedom than ever before to create typographic expression that goes beyond the mere graphic presentation of text.

+$Designers and typographers are turning typographic tradition on its head and pushing experimentation into the mainstream.

+$Here, professional typeface designers hand-pick the less well-known typefaces that excites them the most…

01. +$TwoPoint, ThreePoint and FourPoint+$by MuirMcNeil

+$"In the last couple of years, Hamish Muir and Paul McNeil have been reinventing some amazing concepts within 'parametric type' design," says US designer and co-founder of type foundry+$Associated Typographics+$, Michael Cina.

+$"This is how I entered the world of type design as well, learning from the genius of Wim Crouwel and other greats. What I love about their work is that they use process-based design and execute it with pure skill."

+$"A lot of times a typeface/system like this can get easily written off, but they present it in a way that demands attention and respect. It also challenges the designer/user to interact with the work and build upon its limitations, which I see as a good thing. True genius."

02. +$AMC Zing+$by Jeremy Mickel

+$"I have a real admiration for the work of Jeremy Mickel's work in general – even though he has abandoned us for LA, the traitor – but I have a special fondness for his AMC Zing from 2012," says designer+$Erik Brandt

03. +$Maison Mono+$by Timo Gaessner

+$"This monolined grotesque has been one of my favourite fonts for a while. I don't know if it is a hidden gem, but it is a gem to me," says designer+$Rejane Dal Bello

04. +$BC Liguria+$by Jan Novák

+$"BC Liguria is highly typographic while being playful and distorted at the same time," reflects Michael Cina.

+$"It reads amazingly well and oddly enough, I have not seen anything quite like it. Normally typefaces like this miss the mark in one or more levels but Liguria is well executed from start to finish."

05. +$Haas Unica / Unica77+$by Lineto

+$"Originally drawn for phototypesetting technology, the typeface was everything Helvetica should have been, but sadly lost to time and a legal battle. Now beautifully re-drawn for the current day by Lineto," say the team at London and New York-based independent type foundry,+$Colophon Foundry
