About TT Cometus Font Family

Introducing TT Cometus, version 2.000, which now supports Cyrillic alphabets! We significantly enhanced the font's character set and technical features.

TT Cometus is a modern slab serif. The typeface's name evokes the image of a comet—a powerful and weighty celestial body with a beautiful tail slicing through space at an incredible speed. This is the key to understanding this font.

TT Cometus embodies a balanced personality: impressive and sturdy but energetic and dynamic at the same time. When designing this typeface, we aimed to incorporate heavy serifs typical for slabs into a modern and dynamic appearance. To achieve this, we combined sturdy details with completely opposite shapes, added a handmade feel, and drew inspiration from brush movements in calligraphy.

So, TT Cometus stands out for its sharp terminals resembling comet tails, which are particularly noticeable in the letters c, y, e, and t. Another curious detail is the stylized junctions of arcs and bowls that add fluidity to the font. Also, the typeface's sturdy serifs allow it to maintain stability. The font features a slight contrast between horizontal and vertical element weights and a high contrast in serifs, junctions, and glyph terminals.

The enhanced version of the typeface boasts long-awaited Cyrillic alphabet support, new stylistic sets and OpenType features, entirely reworked kerning, and improved hinting.

TT Cometus shines best in large point sizes. This font is anything but neutral! It’s eye-catching and looks flawless in headlines, logos, and branding – wherever attention needs to be captured.

The updated TT Cometus includes:

  • 5 font styles: 4 roman ones and one variable font with a weight variation axis;

  • 1000 characters in each font style;

  • 33 OpenType features, counting in numerous ligatures and sets of alternate ampersand and letter g glyphs;

  • 230+ languages support.
