Stat Pro is a sans serif type family legible in circumstances of low visibility. Its large character set with multiple weights is defined by optimal size ratio, distinctive letter shapes, wide aperture and balanced counters.    Stat Pro remains legible in unfavorable circumstances of distance, size, movement and similar. It contains over 700 glyphs, including diacritics, ligatures, small caps, old–style figures, arrows and more. This enables it to achieve wide language support.  Its main Display style is accompanied by a Text style which retains many characteristics of its Display counterpart, while giving readability a greater importance.   Stat Display consists of four main (Light, Regular, Medium, Bold) and four secondary, negative weights (Light Negative, Regular Negative, Medium Negative, Bold Negative). Stat Text consists of four weights (Light, Regular, Medium, Bold). All Display and Text weights are accompanied by their corresponding obliques.     Stat Pro type family has higher than average x height (72% of cap height) which is accompanied by matching ascender and descender size ratios. With its distinctive letter shape detail it minimizes the possibility of letter shape confusion, while optimizing legibility with wide aperture and balanced counters.    Its main intended use is information design, where it, with its characteristics, meets the requirements of wayfinding, infographics, table setting and much, much more. It expand its possibilities of use with the Text style which is meant to be used in longer passages of text, where the visual character of the composition is retained and at the same time readability of text is given attention. The development of the type family was based on research in legibility to achieve highly legible letter shapes, while not diminishing their visual character.    A detailed description of Stat Display Pro and its complementary Stat Text Pro type family can be seen at www.Stat-Type.com where a DEMO font can be downloaded.

Intended Uses – Information Design
Wayfinding
Legibility is the first and most important requirement of typefaces that are used in wayfinding
Stat achieves high legibility levels with its characteristics which are aimed to achieve highest
​possible levels of letter recognition.
 
Infographics
Typefaces used in infographics occupy a secondary role. They help with verbal definitions, which requires high legibility and a clear and large character set. Stat was in this respect developed 
​with infographic integration in mind.
 
Tables
Tables require special definitions that help typesetting and  information systematization. 
Stat contains tabular lining and old–style, sub and superscript figures, which enable typesetting
​of easily legible tables.
 
 
 
 
 
Styles
Display (top)
Optimized for headlines or short text forms, Stat Display gives its greatest emphasis on letter shape differentiation with form details which reduce their similarity and enhance legibility.
 
Text (bottom)
Based on Stat Display, Stat Text is optimized for use in longer texts. Its forms are cleaner and have less details, which influences readability and gives the text a softer rhythm.
 
Oblique
At its base Stat Oblique is a slanted upright, with certain cursive elements. It comes in both Display and Text styles and compliments their corresponding uprights. Its slant angle is 9° which is large enough to enable sufficient shape contrast but still small enough to not greatly affect the legibility.
 
 
 
 
 
Size Ratio
With its 72% height when compared to capitals, Stats x height is higher than average, which dramatically affect legibility. Its combination with optimal ascender and descender heights,
where ascenders are slightly higher than capitals, creates distinct, recognizable outer shapes of words.
 
 
 
 
 
Ink Traps & Visual Corrections
Where letter strokes cross each other or join at a sharp angle, problematic print details and dense visual areas appear. To reduce these to a minimum, certain problematic letter shape details of Stat were redrawn. This reduces printing and viewing problems and affects legibility in a positive way.
 
 
 
 
 
Weight & Style Sets
Stat Display Pro
Display or short text form use, 4 weights (Light, Regular, Medium, Bold), with corresponding obliques.
Stat Display Pro Negative
​Display or short text form use on dark backgrounds, 4 weights (Light, Regular, Medium, Bold),
​with corresponding obliques.
 
Stat Text Pro
Longer text form use, 4 weights (Light, Regular, Medium, Bold), with corresponding obliques.
 
 
 
 
 
Open–type
Open–type features
Open Type features were implemented to a large extent. Stat enables small caps, ligatures, tabular & old–style figures, fractions and more.
