#11 Eames Black Stencil

When you’re looking for a great stencil font that’s beautifully designed and not in the least bit cheap-looking or gimmicky, this House Industries favourite should be your first port of call. This top font is part of the broader Eames family, developed in homage to the late great Charles and Ray Eames – which comes in its own bespoke wooden packaging. The curves in the stencil font were inspired by the curvature of bent plywood.

#10 Enclave

Designed by Terminal Design’s James Montalbano with the goal of being unique but still highly legible, Enclave boasts thick, chunky slab serifs that are nonetheless softened and subtly rounded to take some of the harsh edge off, and warmth, and stop it looking too much like a typewriter font. Another top font that works equally well large or as a text face.
