Idlewild with Claimcheck
Our Claimcheck typeface captures the anonymous look of automatic numbering machines. Idlewild shares these mechanistic qualities, but Claimcheck’s unsubtle geometries highlight the more nuanced forms in Idlewild, providing a context that helps the font look tidy and smart.

Idlewild with Vitesse
Both Vitesse and Idlewild are studies in complex curvature, Vitesse’s bowed sides and fast corners making it a great foil for Idlewild’s more unhurried shapes. Giving Idlewild a supporting role at smaller sizes helps reinforce this relationship.

Idlewild with Knockout
Its nine different widths give Knockout ample opportunities to play against Idlewild’s long proportions. In the company of Knockout’s sobriety, a letterspaced Idlewild seems similarly serious — perhaps even arch and ironic.

Idlewild with Gotham
Gotham has the gift of timelessness, a virtue it lends easily to Idlewild. Together the fonts create typography of an uncertain age, plausible as historical artifacts yet unflinchingly up-to-date.

Idlewild with Verlag
Verlag stands tall, its low x-height and upright gait offering an attractive contrast for Idlewild’s more relaxed proportions. The alert buzz of Verlag’s lowercase strikes a welcome chord with the tranquil hum of Idlewild’s capitals, especially in lighter weights.
Verlag 30 styles from $199
Idlewild with Sentinel
Idlewild’s clear and unambiguous letterforms bring out Sentinel’s more childlike qualities, without either design surrendering its trademark sophistication. Together the fonts feel joyful without being foolish, and accessible without being obvious.
