About Mutable Font Family

Mutable is as flamboyant and changeable as its name suggests. These characterful fonts were designed specifically for display purposes. It’s an exuberant type family that’s jam-packed with alternates and bestowed with a loud personality.

This typeface is defined by its barbed serifs and elegantly curved terminals, or “foxtails” as they are sometimes known. An extremely large x-height amplifies the friendliness and buoyancy of the lowercase glyphs. These qualities give Mutable a unique aesthetic that will undoubtedly give your logotypes, headlines, and titles a distinctive appeal. Mutable has a strong Art Nouveau influence and was mainly inspired by Ed Benguiat’s Tiffany and the mysterious Pretorian typeface accredited to P.M. Shanks and Sons of London.

Special OpenType features include 523 alternates that will make each word resonate beautifully when used in titling and branding situations. With so many alternates available, you may find it difficult to stop playing and settle on a selection... but that’s a good thing, right? Small Caps are also included (along with their matching diacritics and alternates) – these are designed to harmonise with regular lowercase forms making unicase-style typography a cinch.

Mutable has a total glyph count of over 2,400 characters. There are 9 weights across 2 widths, ranging from a delicate and wispy Narrow Thin to a chunky and imposing Ultra. And... it’s variable! This allows you to select any width or weight in between, making Mutable even more... erm... mutable! This type family has an extensive character set that covers all Latin European languages.

Finally, you can test drive Mutable immediately as the Regular weight is offered as a free download.

About Paulo Goode

As a child I was fascinated by the multitude of letterforms that surround us, I would spend hours drawing words (and cars) in my sketchbooks. I don’t know what happened to those sketches, but I certainly never made it as an automobile designer! Maybe there’s a chance my fonts will prove more successful? As I grew up, I developed my artistic skills and became a technical illustrator and moved into graphic design with the advent of the Macintosh computer. At the age of 45 I rekindled my interest in typeface design and am thoroughly enjoying the process of font creation and producing some interesting typefaces of distinction. I'm still fascinated by the multitude of letterforms that surround us — and am very happy to be contributing my own.The Premium foundry page can be viewed Here.
