Introducing Solitas Slab: turn heads with its soft, distinct look









Slab serif, meet the curves of Solitas. The new slab sister of insigne’s successful Solitas family will turn your head with its soft, but distinct look. Solitas Slab defies the typical feel of the robust slab category with her more compact structure and rounded corners to create a confident charm that complements everything sweet from cookies and puppies to whiskers on kittens.

Solitas Slab offers you a full suite of 42 well-rounded fonts that read well both in print and online. Its round, open letter types make it quick to read, and the intermediate weights execute impeccably for copy, while bolder versions make expressive headlines and subheadings. Using its subtle geometry, its seven weights and three widths along with its optically adjusted italics tackle even the most complicated, ambitious typography with heart-warming grace and poise.

Solitas Slab OpenType options include titling caps, small capitals, ligatures, ordinal characters, fractions, numerator and denominator as well as superscript and subscript. Solitas Slab also supports Western European, Central and Eastern European languages.

Enjoy the softer side of Solitas Slab today for your packaging, web, or print. You’ll soon find this friendly font to be one of your favorite things.

Guerilla Marketing

Just recently, I was wondering why we don’t see more of... ...this... ...this... ...this... ...this... and this here in the states. Yes, guerilla marketing. As you can see, all of these images don’t have their point of origin here in the USA. Then, I got my answer . Seriously, when looking at few of these campaigns, although they are clever and probably very effective, some of them seem destructive and disruptive. I think that American advertisers recognize this, and understood that American culture doesn’t have time or allow disruptions or annoyances, making it a tactic that is rarely used stateside. There are also probably some legal, or rather enforcement reasons that make it more common overseas. Any other thoughts? Everything with the exception of AXE via adgoodness . AXE via ibeliveinadv .

DevChatt

I had the chance to talk to a group of developers at DevChatt 11. I spoke on webfonts. The talk was recorded, so hopefully I can put the audio up soon. The presentation is available here: I am very happy about my move to Chattanooga (in addition to moving here to be with my wife). There are some tremendous things happening, and a very strong entrepreneurial spirit abounds. After attending DevChatt, I was inspired to brush off a few business ideas and I hope to develop these further. One is related to my core competency, typography, while the other is in a totally different field. I was also inspired by listening to Ale Paul and Luc De Groot in New York City this past week. Here are a few links to some inspiring local organizations: DevChatt CreateHere costarters.co Chattarati colab.is
