20 Best New Fonts, June 2021

Welcome to the first in a new series of posts in which we take a look at the best new fonts released in the previous four weeks. In June’s inaugural edition, you’ll find some reliable workhorses, some exciting new display faces, a classic from a sadly deceased design legend, a variable version of a must-own typeface, and tons more. Enjoy!

What to Expect from Windows 11

Microsoft’s “next-generation” Windows event takes place this week, and the big news is an update to Windows that leaks suggest is distinctly Mac-inspired. Following on from the news that Windows 10 has just four years left, Tom Warren reports on the rumors surrounding the next Windows user interface, including some enticing screenshots.

Brave Search

For users concerned with privacy, search has historically been a challenging area; every major search engine algorithm is validated by user tracking.

6 Levels of UX Maturity

In this fascinating post, self-appointed guardians of UX, the Nielsen Norman Group redefines its 2006 model for user experience maturity by cutting the levels by 25%.
