Conto Slab — a further family member of the sans serif Conto — is an individual and significant slab serif typeface in eight weights. It is mainly designed for corporate identity along with the editorial design and advertising. An almost never seen before set of ligatures make the fonts useful for logos and lettering!
The sporty Thin and the powerful Black weights are working well in display typography, while the Regular, Medium and Bold weights are meant to stay well in text and tables.
Main characteristic are the minimalistic and reduced lowercase shapes (a, b, d, g, m, n, p, q, r, u). Another specific feature is the rising contrast. Whereas you can not find any contrast in the Thin weight, you will find more and more contrast while climbing up to Black.
“Enjoy the extraordinary italics!” They are not just slanted slab obliques, they are a mixture of real italics and slanted shapes. Have a look!
Conto Slabs special ligatures are made for logo-types and lettering. Therefore you find around 100 discretionary ligatures like cl, en, rx or sty and many more! Try the OT-feature ss01. Maybe there is something nice for your next logo.
Each font contains around 878 glyphs and supports all Latin-script based languages. It also includes small-caps and all kind of figures you need for serious typography. Of course, you have case and small-cap sensitive punctuation and fractions up to 1/9 (one ninth).
