Here at dashcreative we’re always on the hunt for cool new typefaces and layered fonts are one of our favourite type trends to emerge this year. Used predominantly for punchy and playful headlines, these fonts can be comprised of up to as many as 20 different layers within each font, making the number of possibilities almost endless. Here’s a quick roundup of some of the best layered fonts for 2013…

TREND

Trend is trending. A layered font family from the prolific Latinotype foundry in Chile, available in both slab serif and sans serif styles, Trend is the hipster font. Designed to reflect a modern, quirky, fashion aesthetic, it features italic variations and heaps of on-trend dingbats, scribbles, ribbons and ornaments, perfect for spicing up any design.

CORE-CIRCUS

Core-Circus designed by the S-Core type foundry is another awesome layered font family that has all the elements to create a power-packed head-line or diverse display font for book titles. Featuring seven 3D effects, eight 2D effects and one shadow effect layer, the variety of options means you can really customise this to fit your graphic needs. “The shape of Core Circus is simple but the combinations of the effects are impressive” the S-Core team says of the design “…with endless combinations (at least 262,551 kinds!!).”
