A simplistic approach to Elegance

PF Marlet is a new inspiring set of type families based on a minimal and simplistic approach to elegance. A type system with contrast progressing from low (Text version) through medium (Display) to high (Finesse), with differentiated letter widths (Titling), extravagant letterforms (Swash) and finally 64 eclectic patterns (Motifs), Marlet evolved from a single typeface into a comprehensive type system in various weights which support Latin, Greek and Cyrillic.

Spekk

A geometric variable typeface tastefully revived from early 20th century archives, Spekk encapsulates the sheer tension among squares, triangles, and circles at its core.  Blended with the smooth curved strokes which end up in horizontal terminals, or the open counters with optimized aperture which preserve legibility at small sizes, Spekk manifests a warm and friendly personality, something we do not often encounter in the monoline geometric genre.

Marlet Titling

Marlet is a beautiful and inspiring set of typographic elements based on a minimal and simplistic approach to elegance. Its thick-thin, serifless strokes express the modernity of the fashion industry, breaking away from the monotone sans serif. In contrast to ultra-feminine Didot and Bodoni, Marlet is a ladylike infused typeface that is nonconformist, multifaceted, fashionable and romantic, strong and chic, casual yet provocative.

Grand Gothik Extended

Grand Gothik is a postmodern, multiscript, multifaceted and variable type system which pays homage to the development of grotesque/gothic typefaces over the years. Taking late 19th and early 20th century European and American grotesques as a starting point, it traces this typeface genre up to mid-century movie theater marquees, new wave cinematography, American highway signage and telephone directories, adding some historical references for good measure.

Venue

PF Venue takes its cues from several sans serif type styles of the twentieth century particularly the more subdued and sleek geometric styles of the Art Deco movement, characterised by the low and high-waisted monostroke designs. Venue is a quite large x-height set of 2 families with alternate letterforms, which manifest a unique texture when set in uppercase.

Brummell

Based on a design which was originally commissioned by a financial institution, Brummell takes a more simplistic geometric approach without missing its original humanist characteristics. The addition of distinctive shapes, whimsical alternates and humanist proportions, create a synergy of characteristics which provide an understated contemporary quality, lacking from most mainstream san serifs.

Regal Finesse Pro

Regal Finesse Pro is a multi-award-winning typeface. Recently it received a ‘red dot: best of the best 2012’ award as part of the Regal Pro type system. This is an elegant, luxurious, sexy and vibrant serif typeface which incorporates several distinct elements blended with classic forms.

Bague Sans Pro

PF Bague Sans Pro is a versatile monoline typeface with a distinct and eye-catching personality. Despite its inspiration from early 20th century geometrics, it diverts from the mechanical rigidity of those typefaces by incorporating humanist characteristics. Bague Sans’ most remarkable feature is its vast array of uppercase alternates and ligatures.

DIN Serif Arabic

DIN Serif was originally designed as a low contrast typeface with functional and distinct novelties which set it apart from most classic romans. Its solid, simple and subtle serif nature directed the development of its Arabic counterpart away from the traditional calligraphic styles, towards a more simplified contemporary design mixing Naskh characteristics with early Kufi style.

Centro Slab Press

Ever since its first release, Centro Slab has been particularly popular with corporate applications, branding and print media. The new Centro Slab Press version was redesigned with narrower proportions which are better suited for publications such as magazines and newspapers as well as web applications. Centro Slab Press is a very clean and legible typeface even at heavier weights, a characteristic which is not often seen among slab typefaces.

DIN Serif

This is the first ever release of a true serif companion for the popular DIN typeface. DIN Serif originated in
 a custom project for a watchmaking journal which required a modern serif to work in unison and match the inherent simplicity of DIN. As a result, a solid, confident and well-balanced typeface was developed which is simple and neutral enough when set at small sizes...

Das Grotesk Mono Pro

Das Grotesk Mono is based on the popular Das Grotesk Pro which was inspired by earlier nineteenth-century grotesques. Due to their pure geometric structure, most grotesque typefaces tend to have a rather monotonous and lifeless appearance. Das Grotesk on the other hand is a lively design with several distinguishable characteristics.

Regal Swash Pro

Regal Swash Pro is a multi-award-winning typeface. Recently it received a ‘red dot: best of the best 2012’ award as part of the Regal Pro type system. This is an elegant, luxurious, sexy and vibrant serif typeface which incorporates several distinct elements blended with classic forms.

DIN Stencil Pro

Despite the fact that over the years several designers have manually created stencil lettering based on DIN for various projects, there has never been a professional digital stencil version of a DIN-based typeface. DIN Stencil Pro was based on its original counterpart DIN Text Pro and was particularly designed to address contemporary projects, by incorporating elements and weights which are akin to industries such as fashion, music, video, architecture, sports and communications.

Champion Script Pro

PF Champion Script Pro is the most advanced and powerful script ever made. Developed over a period of two and a half years, each one of the 2 weights is loaded with 4300 glyphs(!), offering simultaneous support for all European languages based on the Latin, Greek and Cyrillic scripts.

Benchmark Pro

Benchmark Pro is a carefully structured geometric typeface which works amazingly well in body text due to its simplistic nature and large x-height. The design of Benchmark Pro started out as an attempt to convert the minimalistic structure of a technical and purely geometric design into a readable modern and friendly sans serif.

DIN Text Pro

The DIN Text series was based on the original standards but was completely redesigned to fit typographic requirements. Completed in 2002, it was first released in 2003 and published as a group of 4 separate families each with 12 weights. The DIN Text Pro series is an improved version which has been enhanced with more weights, multilingual support and opentype features.

Adamant Pro

The Adamant family is a serif typeface that comes in six weights, from Light to ExtraBold, each with italic and small caps versions. Every font includes ligatures, lining and oldstyle figures in proportional and tabular widths, fractions, alternate characters, and other typographic features.
