About Conto Slab Font Family

Conto Slab - the robust sister of the sans serif Conto. Conto Slab is an individual and significant slab serif typeface in eight weights. Like Conto, it is mainly designed for corporate identity, editorial and advertising design — and, like Conto, an extensive set of more than a hundred ligatures make the typeface useful for logotypes and lettering. Its minimalist and simplified lowercase forms, combined with contrast that ranges from the mono-linear in the thin to the pronounced in the bold and spiced with slab serifs, mark Conto Slab as a striking companion or alternative to Conto. And check out the extraordinary italics! These aren’t the slanted obliques of a slab serif, they are a unique mixture of real italics and oblique shapes. Each weight of Conto Slab contains some 878 glyphs to support all Latin-script based languages and includes small caps, all the figures you need for serious typography and, of course, case and small-cap sensitive punctuation and fractions

About TypeMates

TypeMates: a straightforward font foundry. For years, we — Jakob, Nils and Lisa — have been passionate about type and since 2015 we are working together, from our offices near Munich and Hamburg, as a type foundry. We don’t believe that typefaces are neutral or purely functional systems for reading, rather that they are a visual language with emotional values. Our aim is to be straightforward in the complex field of type design. We do not want to hype or praise type too much, we want to work together with our clients and partners to deliver good results. Our practice covers everything, from the tiniest nuance in a logo or piece of lettering to the design of extensive type systems. And whether it’s a beautiful idea, a complex client project with intense technical demands, or we’re just following our investigative TypeMate’s nose — we’re passionate about well-made letterforms delivered to the highest technical standard. Whether it’s Die Zeit online, Fast Company, Red Bull TV or Lufthansa Magazine, typefaces we designed are used by magazines, newspapers and corporations who set the bar for design.
