Tellumo™ Font Field Guide
Tellumo melds a clear personality with legibility characteristics, making it ideal for display copy as well as modest blocks of running text.
A modest range of six weights, from Thin to ExtraBold, make Tellumo versatile without being overwhelming. The lightest and heaviest weights are ideal for headlines and subheads.
- Large caps in the “swash” OpenType feature drop below the baseline, and often have extended crossbars.
- Unlike most swash letters, whole words can be set in Tellumo’s.
- The variable fonts have a weight axis.
- There are no true small caps, but the regular caps can look like small caps when set with swash letters.
While Tellumo fits comfortably into the category of geometric sans serif, with a hint of humanism – it also has a subtle infusion of designs by Lucian Bernhard, notably: Bernhard Gothic and Bernhard Fashion.
An ample lowercase x-height, large counters, generous apertures and moderate contrast in character stroke thickness, combine to give Tellumo high levels of legibility.
