Sindelar / Type family

Discipline: Communication

Sindelar is a capable, contemporary text face addressing today’s news design requirements. Its large x-height, low contrast and robust serifs grant a high legibility in small sizes. The balanced, well chosen proportions make the typeface economic (i.e. space saving) without giving it a too narrow appearance. These characteristics make it the ideal choice for extensive text setting in newspapers and magazines – on paper and on screen. Sindelar comes in 18 styles – nine weights in Roman and Italic each. Each font is equipped with a huge character set of about 980 glyphs and various OpenType features.

Traditional type design usually has a difficult time in the context of an exciting and colorful design competition. The Sindelar type family, however, has succeeded because, in its smaller point sizes, it offers excellent legibility while only needing minimal space. The Sindelar family includes 18 fonts and 980 lovingly designed glyphs. Besides meeting every criterion for body text, in larger point sizes, the Sindelar looks well balanced and elegant... ‘sexy’ even.
