Please enjoy the free "Bold" weight of our new 8-face family Familiar Pro. Download it and take it for a spin. Test out the quality of the outlines and the language support - and then go to our site for the rest of the family! ;)
This family was inspired by a Type Battle over at Typophile: How would you design a font metrically compatible with Helvetica, but better than Arial? Working with preset letter widths was an interesting constraint, both a relief and a limitation at the same time.
I have done all the 4 basic weights, and the skewed obliques has been optically adjusted. The letters have been designed quite close to the german/swiss grotesk tradition, but by using super-elliptical rounds, rounded dots and slightly curved outer diagonals the end result is a friendly looking font family that still looks... familiar.
Familiar Pro font contains 369 defined characters and 149 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (96), Latin Extended-A (127), Latin Extended-B (11), Spacing Modifier Letters (8), Latin Extended Additional (12), General Punctuation (16), Currency Symbols (1), Letterlike Symbols (1), Mathematical Operators (1), Alphabetic Presentation Forms (2).
