Font Update

The New T-Star Pro Version 3.0
Posted by Gestalten—02/2013

Plain, smooth, and technical, just as designer Michael Mischler intended, the new T-Star Pro is greatly refined and optimized. This font is slender in its proportions and highly economical when it comes to the space taken up by body text.

T-Star’s features include low-contrast, uniform line width, laterally flattened, round basic forms, as well as cut-back ascenders and descenders. It’s a plain, technical-style typeface that is slender in its proportions and highly economical when it comes to the space taken up by body text. Its appearance is marked by openness and the individual characters show surprisingly unconventional features. T-Star is an exemplary typeface for headlines and texts for books and magazine editorials with a well-developed font family ranging from light to heavy. 

 
The new T-Star Pro has enhanced attributes comprising uniform vertical metrics, optimized kerning and hinting, and completely revised “Italic” weights. More importantly, the new “Heavy” weight is now replacing the existing “Headline” weight, including lower case letters. Its language sets comprise all Eastern European and Nordic characters and have been extended to include Cyrillic and Greek.
