What is the Supernett cn™ font?
Ever tried to write a Sans-Serif by hand? We did it Supernett™!
More than 4700 glyphs per style to pursue one goal: let the font look real hand-made, let equal glyphs look different to each other. Three OpenType features are specially tailored to enhance this impression, with a maximum effect when applied to big type:
For a truly hand-drawn look, letters and numerics alternate randomly between three different variants (→ activate “Contextual Alternates”) More…
All glyphs rotate randomly and slightly around their own axis (→ activate “Swashes”)
Varying Baseline Shift
Each single glyph moves individually up or down (→ activate “Titling Alternates”)
… and some more OT-features for the typographic detail:
Case Sensitive Forms
This feature shifts various punctuation marks to a position that works better with all caps typography. (→ It is deployed when an app’s all-caps styling is applied)
The problem with the numeral 0 is that it can look too much like O in some typefaces. This feature replaces every zero with a slashed zero. (→ activate “Zero with a Slash”)
Substitutes figures separated by a slash by proper fraction glyphs. A date however, written like 10/12/2013 will remain unchanged. (→ activate “Fractions”)
Stylistic Set 03 lets you choose between two different styles of bullet (•)
Stylistic Set 04 lets you choose between two different styles of Y
Supernett – a versatile display font – is tailored for large font sizes but also impresses with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Supernett is fairly condensed for space-saving headlines, a more extended version is already in the works. The extensive character set supports Central and Eastern European as well as Western European languages.
And now, please enjoy!
