Two new fonts by Dalton Maag


Dalton Maag has launched two new library fonts today: Soleto and Prometo. Created to work and play together, each one has its own story to tell but as a duet they are something more. Soleto is a text friendly font. Prometo is optimised for display and it has a perfect text partner in Soleto. The design process began in early 2012, with the first sketches for Prometo done by the DM Brazil office. The font that was […]
