Emil is a text typeface meant for various printed matter such as books, magazines, office or tax related documents. It draws influence from slab serif and typewriter fonts, without being limited by mechanical issues. The Emil family is comprised of five styles. The Regular, Italic and Bold are designed for body text, but could well be used in larger sizes and paired with the delicate Hairline version. The Bold is strong and chunky, while the Italics look softer. Shaped with concave stems and a tiny bit of contrast, Emil is somewhere halfway between a typical text typeface (slightly slanted upper serifs) and a slab (straight bottom serifs, low contrast). Its squarish proportions also somewhat contribute to make the reading easy and enjoyable. Go to the next project to see the process.
