In global terms, if the Western font market is a Walmart Superstore, the Thai type design scene is a tiny hidden gem of a shop, quietly tucked away in the middle of a nondescript residential neighborhood. All the locals know exactly where to find it, but outsiders will rarely ever know of its existence.
Deltatype, based in Bangkok, is one such treasure. A subsidiary of Craftsmanship, Deltatype creates fresh, beautiful fonts for print and digital applications.
Their newest addition, MartiniThai Neue Slab, is a perfectly-proportioned slab serif based off their original typeface, Martini. MartiniThai Neue Slab is clean and modern in its presentation, and can be found perfectly at home in headlines, editorials, white papers, corporate communications, business cards, logos, advertising spreads, product packaging, and web content.
MartiniThai Neue Slab is available in six weights that give designers plenty of flexibility in their projects: Thin, Light, Regular, Bold, ExtraBold, and Black. Multilingual support that covers Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Pan African Latin, and Basic Greek further extends to include the Thai language, something that’s not often seen in most lettersets.
In fact, if you are fluent in Thai, you’ll definitely want to check out the Thai alphabet glyphs using our type tester. YouWorkForThem’s type tester code fully supports Thai script, among a myriad of other languages, providing designers with an opportunity to see words and phrases in any font of their choice in a matter of seconds.
As the original creative marketplace, YouWorkForThem is extremely proud to be able to offer a platform for type designers from every corner of the world. To see more work from Deltatype, visit their portfolio and be sure to bookmark their page for future additions!
