TypeTogether’s Tablet Gothic

Tablet Gothic from Veronika Burian and José Scaglione of TypeTogether makes brilliant harmony of two disparate grotesque models in a healthy number of widths and weights. First created for setting titles in periodicals, the project grew to handle text setting quite well, with a comfortably loose fit in the regular weights.

The overall tone stays friendly throughout, helped by the face’s active, vibrant curves and casually closed forms.

When working in more traditional titling weights, the spacing eases into a more snug fit. Tablet Gothic comes in six widths: Compressed, Condensed, SemiCondensed, Narrow, Regular, and Wide. And each width comes in seven weights ranging from Thin to Heavy.

Get the whole family or buy only the weights you need. You can also try Tablet Gothic using the FontShop plugin in Photoshop or Illustrator, and download Tablet Gothic Semi Condensed Extra Bold free from FontShop.com.
