Transat is a geometric sans serif typeface, with caps inspired by Art Deco signage — found inside the "Gare Maritime" (literally "sea station") ocean liner terminals in both Le Havre and Cherbourg, France, in the early 1930s. The name “Transat” is the common shortening of “Compagnie Générale Transatlantique,” the company that operated majestic ocean liners like the SS Normandie out of Le Havre from 1862–1974.
Transat includes many OpenType features, such as ligatures (ff/ft/fft), small capitals, case sensitive forms, stylistic alternates, arbitrary fractions, and a full compliment of proportional, tabular, and oldstyle figures.
The typeface, released in 5 weights (including optically-corrected obliques) is perfect for display usage, and the standard and medium weights are also well-suited for short-to-medium length text settings.
