Midnight is a font family that is highly legible on-screen as well as on the printed page. It features several unique characters (see the "M" and "g"). Take a look at a preview:
Regular | Bold | Italic | Bold Italic | Small Caps & Old Style Figures
Or see a sample web page using this font as the default.
Midnight was designed at a furious pace over the span of one weekend. I started on the font as soon as I got home from work, and finished while watching X-Files on Sunday night. The reason I was able to do this so quickly is that I had just finished Nu Sans and so I had a lot of techniques and time-savers that I had learned. I also avoided many mistakes that bogged down the production of Nu Sans in Midnight.
Midnight is reminiscent of one of my favorite fonts, Gill Sans. While Gill Sans is a humanist san serif, Midnight is a mono-weight san serif. Midnight also has an unusual lowercase "g" that I got the idea from an early version of Futura's "g." This character never made it into Futura, and I thought that was a shame. I guess they didn't think it was conservative enough. Anyway, I incorporated this into my design and I think you'll agree that the result is not too way out.
I hope that you enjoy using these fonts as much as I enjoyed designing them for you! Send me your comments at email@example.com.
