This swanky little number has a certain je ne se quois. It makes us feel like putting on a wide-brimmed hat and sticking on a jazz vinyl.

Give your advertisements an edge with this impactful font that looks fabulous in complementary colours.

This swoon-worthy font is ideal for headlines or logos. It’s retro and modern at the same time.

It’s all gone a little classy with Ogg. Named after the talented calligrapher and book designer, Oscar Ogg, this font channels the handwritten calligraphy style.

Ooooh, so fresh and so clean! We love this edgy, modern font.

Yeehaw! This font evokes the Wild West and is sure to appeal to bearded hipsters across the land.

As adorable as its namesake, this cutesy font is pretty and endearing.

Quattrocento Sans

Understated yet powerful, we like a font that doesn’t try too hard to impress. Like this one.

If you’re looking for a font that’s sassy, quirky and unique, you may just have found your Lobster.

Hitting the geometric trend head-on, this sans serif typeface really knows how to work those angles.

One Day

Font example.

Slimline, visually interesting and raw, One Day is a modern font characterised by distinctive broken lines.

Aqua Grotesque

Font example.

A font that appears at first deceptively simple, Aqua is composed of straight lines and rounded forms. The perfect combo of smooth and straight.


Font example.

Inspired by 3D computer modelling, Polya is playful and features bold forms.


Font example.

If you like your letters loooong then you’ll love Komoda. This slim typeface is pristine and modern.


Font example.

We’ve gone dotty for this font, inspired by the IBM Harvard, a computer which reads instructions from a perforated card.

Simple, understated and effective. This geometric font is exquisitely subtle and unique.

Stay Writer

Font example.

Handwritten fonts are as popular as ever, and this charming font is delicate and beautifully crafted.

Gloss & Bloom

Font example.

This cheeky little brush font is oh-so-fabulous. Swishing across a page it simply cannot be ignored.

Who doesn’t love a little drama in their typeface? This theatrical font likes to stand out from the crowd.

“Ben and the team at Firefly have been great – creative, friendly, fun and professional from start to finish of our label design project.

Despite us providing a rather vague brief, they completely got what we were looking to achieve and delivered an excellent creative proposal which we are now moving ahead with. They worked with pace and their communication was good throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again and would strongly recommend them for any creative requirements.”
