Marat and Marat Sans

Call me lazy, but sometimes I think it’s revealing to look at pairings where the faces are expressly made to work together. Today it’s Ludwig Übele’s Marat and Marat Sans.

Marat-and-Marat-Sans-1 Marat-and-Marat-Sans-2

Pervading both designs but particularly visible in Marat [serif] is a certain speed of stroke that snaps at the terminals. Marat Sans is considerably more calm in this regard, though its exuberance is undeniable in its heavier weights. Rather than assuming the more common role as a tempering force in the pairing, the subtle mischief of Marat Sans’s forms only encourages its serifed companion’s playfulness.

Marat-and-Marat-Sans-3 Marat-and-Marat-Sans-4

At text sizes, Marat reduces to a pleasant texture, setting economically on the line.

Marat-and-Marat-Sans-5 Marat-and-Marat-Sans-6

That’s it. Great Pairs continues here Wednesday. Both Marat and Marat Sans are participating in this year’s March Madness.

March Madness begins Wednesday, March 19th.

March-Madness-2014-title

March Madness begins on the 19th in the Southwest corner of your bracket. Popular vote determines the winner of each round. Single elimination. Research the typefaces in the tournament here at FontShop or in the FontBook App. Want a reminder in your inbox the day of the first round? Sign up for our Newsletter! Thanks to Sutro Deluxe, Miller, and MVB Solano Gothic for setting the nameplate and serving as impartial referee.

What are you waiting for? Print and fill out a bracket now; (it’s a PDF). And see you March 19th!

Update: The bracket has been updated. We forgot and left out ITC Franklin when this bracket was initially published. (There it is just above FF Netto in the Southwest corner.) If your bracket says Today Sans here, that was our mistake. Just relabel it ITC Franklin or grab the new bracket.

Buyer’s Guide: New Product Pages

Welcome to the second part of our new product page series. Last week we reviewed two features, the sample text tool bar and buying options, on FontShop. This week we’ll take a look at the Glyph Tab using Gordon by Letterbox as an example.

The Character Set option allows you to view the all the glyphs available in a specific font. A small arrow will appear in a glyph’s box if there are alternates characters for that glyph. You can click on the arrow to preview the alternates.

Character_Set

The Language Support option will show you all of the languages that the font will support. Typically fonts will support common languages like Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, and Spanish.

Languages

Now you know where to find out if a font has contextual alternates and supports a specific language. If you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.

Friday Five Fonts: Penna by DSType and Altis by Typolar

FF Quixo and MVB Solano Gothic

Today we take a look at the interaction between a couple of recent favorites of mine, Frank Grießhammer’s FF Quixo and Mark van Bronkhorst’s Solano Gothic.
FF-Quixo-and-MVB-Solano-Gothic-6

To those who know its creator, FF Quixo is an autobiographical work—a serious piece of design that doesn’t take itself so seriously it fears a public perception of goofiness. The face achieves a nice texture both on the micro and macro level with a neat, quite carefully orchestrated, yet not-too-careful-looking speedball lettering approach. At size, FF Quixo’s text weight reads like a slightly upped-contrast Clarendon. MVB Solano Gothic stands in striking contrast, a set of two architectural-lettering–inspired alphabets that capture well the feel of American public building signage from, say, 1960. Drawn initially as a single style, caps-only typeface, the design was expanded to include a lowercase and small caps, in a range of weights, both in regular and Retro variants. The generous all-cap spacing seen below is activated via OpenType’s case feature, All caps, or by using the dedicated Caps font singles.

FF-Quixo-and-MVB-Solano-Gothic-2 FF-Quixo-and-MVB-Solano-Gothic-3

The characteristic held in common by each is that it’s a current reinterpretation of an old familiar standard. And to me, what makes the pair, is the particularly visible wink at the audience from the vantage point of the faces’ sources. Both evidently designs contemporary to the here and now, they stand as reminders that those draftsmen, letterers, and type designers who came before us also were confronted with the same challenges of form that we face today, and that they humbly achieved greatness through the same sensitivity to form that great work has always required.

FF-Quixo-and-MVB-Solano-Gothic-4FF-Quixo-and-MVB-Solano-Gothic-8

I just as well add that FF Quixo has a fantastic set of dingbats, and that Solano Gothic sets short bits of copy just fine. To end, the below example shows what happens when you convert the eszett or German double s ligature, ß, to all caps—it becomes SS (as it should). Though recent attempts have been made to establish the validity of a capital German double s ligature, our two type designers in question today remain firmly opposed to such a step. That’s why I find it an act of supreme humility that Frank Grießhammer includes in FF Quixo the character in both cap and small cap form. He does exile the two to the glyph palette, with neither discretionary ligature nor stylistic alternate / stylistic set access by way of OpenType.

FF-Quixo-and-MVB-Solano-Gothic-7

That’s all. Great Pairs continues here Wednesday.
