Going from friendly and stable to playful and exaggerated, June Expt is a striking display typeface that can give your headings a certain … twist.

My thoughts on June Expt

Let’s go on a little summer adventure, exploring unusual styles and ideas. June Expt is a collaboration between Fernanda Cozzi and Oscar Guerrero, that started during the COVID lockdowns with the question of what happens when you combine letters, love and wine?

June Curious seems Exaggerated
Twisted, Playful. June Active seems calm, stable, friendly
June Expt comes in two very diverse styles, Active and Curious

The result of that were two very different styles of the same typeface. June Active is a calm, stable, linear sans-serif. But that does not mean all boring. Peculiarities, like the single-sided bar of the lower case t, the flat bottom of the b, and the softly curved v, w, and y make it special and reminding me of an upright italic (more on that in my Amaranth review).

With the variable font, you can seamlessly shift between the two styles

On the other hand, June Curious seems exaggerated, twisted, playful and contrasting. At times, it almost looks organic, then suddenly twisted, or even overexposed, almost fading away. Set in all caps, it appears boxy and fluid at the same time, giving me somehow restrained 60ies vibes.

June Curious For a wild heading almost melting away. June Active for a quiet heading just a little quirky. But the combination makes it interesting.

But what really makes this typeface special, is combining the two styles, in large titles or engaging pull quotes. This however needs some finesse when laying it out. I recommend that you decide on one primary style, then feel what is most important in that title or sentence, and consciously use the other style to highlight. Or use one style and try out all the states between by playing around with the variable font axis. Just don’t forget to have fun, explore and enjoy summer!

  1. We’re approaching the end of 3rd quarter and I now know that B from June Expt Active is the letter of the year! 🥳

    I haven’t seen more fun, engaging, and crazily grounded letter forms such as in June Expt. They’re dancing half-through the wine bottle. Not drunk (yet) 😅
    June Curious in all caps is a spooky art pattern.

    Enjoy your vacay, well-deserved time fam!
