A geometric sans! with its basic structure inspired by some of our favourite hot metal fonts: Memphis, Karnak, Stymie, Scarab and Paul Renner’s Futura — Regular started as a slab serif font in late 2011, however I soon realised that it wasn’t going to bring anything particularly new to the faces already available on the market so my design was placed in a drawer.
A couple of months passed and on a visit to Antwerp, I was reminded of the distinct lowercase g featured in some of the aforementioned typefaces. High up on a wall was a shadow of a past sign, but a sans version! This interesting discovery inspired me to go back to the font and my early ideas and basically work the slab serif font that I had already started into a sans! Regular is in many ways a revival but it is also a font that has contemporary references and key words like Rational, Readable, Refined, Relevant, Reliable and Responsive were on the check-list during my design process.
The carefully crafted range of weights — Light, Regular, Medium, Semibold, Bold, Extrabold & Black — is ideal for books and magazines and it also lends itself very nicely to screen based projects. The family of fonts incorporates true Italics for each weight. giving a distinct look when set in running text.
Regular suggest a Modernist approach to design — but is open for interpretation.
Regular is available in seven feature-rich weights in Roman & Italic with built-in small caps.
