Ever tried to write a Sans-Serif by hand? We did it Supernett™!
More than 4700 glyphs per style to pursue one goal: let the font look real hand-made, let equal glyphs look different to each other. Three OpenType features are specially tailored to enhance this impression, with a maximum effect when applied to big type:
For a truly hand-drawn look, letters and numerics alternate randomly between three different variants (activate “Contextual Alternates”)
All glyphs rotate randomly and slightly around their own axis (activate “Swashes”)
Varying Baseline Shift
Each single glyph moves individually up or down (activate “Titling Alternates”)
... and some more OT-features for the typographic detail:
Case Sensitive Forms
This feature shifts various punctuation marks to a position that works better with all caps typography. (It is deployed when an app’s all-caps styling is applied)
The problem with the numeral 0 is that it can look too much like O in some typefaces. This feature replaces every zero with a slashed zero. (activate “Zero with a Slash”)
Substitutes figures separated by a slash by proper fraction glyphs. A date however, written like 10/12/2013 will remain unchanged. (activate “Fractions”)
Stylistic Set 03 lets you choose between two different styles of bullet (•)
Stylistic Set 04 lets you choose between two different styles of Y
Supernett – a versatile display font – is tailored for large font sizes but also impresses with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Supernett is fairly condensed for space-saving headlines, a more extended version is already in the works. The extensive character set supports Central and Eastern European as well as Western European languages.
And now, please enjoy!
