About Naste Font Family
Tipo Pèpel strikes again with a lush splurge on pure basic geometrical shapes and sizes, those that inspired Paul Renner’s typographic milestone “Futura”. A new look to classic shapes, bringing them back plenty of delightfullly details as the lowercase cursive forms’ long tiles that break the supposed linearity expected from a purely geometrical font.
Rhythm given by hidden details in each character of each weight, push “Naste” out of German geometric sobriety, will help us to easily create typographic hierarchies upon the many weights available and the many and accurate details. Excellent results with minimal effort.
Wide ‘x’ height, restrained ascending and descending stems; thick but elegant, easy to read and in need of generous white space around, where it feels comfortable. More is better than less.
As usual in Type Pépel, full sets of Opentype alternatives and Unicode support for 104 languages plus Cyrillic.
16 weights of typographic beauty in all its glory.
About Tipo Pèpel
Located in a small town, Les Borges Blanques, Spain, Tipo Pèpel is a digital type foundry run by Josep Patau.
The self-taught designer began producing experimental typefaces in 1996 and started selling them through MyFonts in 2011. His debut font, Anduaga, was a revival from Joseph de Anduaga y Garimberti, the XVII´s famous spanish calligrapher. Since then, his library had expanded to include nearly two dozen font families, each of which is unique and reflects the small country town he comes from with a familiar rural feel. Some of Josep’s best selling typefaces, including Pobla, Bridone, and Cinta, really demonstrate the impact his home has on his designs, while Boxed, a semi-modular geometric font, is a step outside of this theme.
“All of my projects excite me and I put my best into each of them, doing everything with my own two hands,” Josep says. “I treat them all like my children.” With a focus on the details and creating high quality drawings, each of his fonts offers an extended character map that is fully capable with OpenType features. He also diligently insures that each of his typefaces is legible in all sizes. “I think that this is one of my goals because I always begin my designs by thinking about the final use if the font,” he says. “I worry about this a lot, so I do thousands of tests before launching the final font to ensure high quality standards and full satisfaction for final users.”
