The original plan for Atlantic was to design a typeface in the Venetian syle of the Renaissance, with handwriting character and large ascenders. There is a wave-rolling unevenness in both the x- and cap-height caused by the strong ductus pointing to the upper right, together with heavily curved serifs, resulting in a very lively image of text on a page.
Atlantic - its name reflects the ocean, ships, carriers and loads, tourism and so on. These are the themes Atlantic is best suited for.
The extended family includes a serif, a sans, and a special variant - a SeaWashed.
Atlantic was designed for the URW++ SelecType collection.
