Magnat is a contrasting sans in 3 optical sizes and 36 styles. It loosely draws inspiration from designs from the early twenties century and expands them into an elegant and distinctive contemporary design.
Magnat is available in three optical sizes: Poster, Head and Text. The Poster and Head styles come with a tight helevticaesque spacing, whereas the Text styles are characterized by a low stroke contrast, generous spacing and ascenders above the cap height. Playful elements such as the curvy ear on the lowercase g or the long tail on the uppercase Q break the strictness and add character. Closed apertures on C, G e, a or s in combination with the elegance of the contrasting strokes create an unconventional and distinctive overall appearance.
As with many of my designs, Magnat also has numerous alternative characters, such as the single-storey a, the upright-italic k, or a classic shape of the lowercase g. Each of the nine stylistic sets can change the overall appearance and create a unique character according to the project you’re working on.
