About this font family
Originally conceived while sketching outline typefaces for a client, Minotte Pro has blossomed into a font one thousand glyphs strong and is chock full of alternates and contextual swashes! By enabling swashes, style sets, and contextual alternates in your OpenType savvy application, headlines and text set with Minotte Pro will transform into unique combinations of initial, middle and final swash forms! There’s also an alternate Cap set with a partial fill for even greater variety! Perfect for travel ad headlines, Minotte Pro adds a light, carefree touch. If your app doesn't support OpenType, then check out the split out versions, Minotte, Minotte Swash, Minotte Fil and Minotte Swash Fil. More…
Minotte Pro Minotte Solid Pro contain these OpenType features: Contextual Swashes, Stylistic Alternates, Standard & Discretionary Ligatures, 6 Style Sets, Superiors & Inferiors, Fractions and Ornaments.
The Minotte Extras Pro Pak includes three chromatic effects fonts, Minotte Center, Minotte Gradient and Minotte Shadow. These Extras fonts are intended to be used with Minotte Pro and Minotte Solid Pro, allowing colorizing and 3-D shadow effects. There are numerous combinations when using all three together! The three Extras fonts support the entire Pro character set and all OpenType features!
Intended for users that do not own or use OpenType savvy apps, the four alternative fonts capture the best of the Pro version and will provide you with the glyphs needed to duplicate some of Minotte Pro’s typographic richness. Minotte and Minotte Fil are fully usable, whereas the Minotte Swash and Minotte Swash Fil are intended to work in tandem with the basic Minotte fonts. Set your headlines and text in Minotte, then switch to Minotte Swash and manually select the appropriate swash glyphs. Switch to either of the Fil fonts for full sets of Cap alternates sporting a partial fill.
Minotte Pro, Minotte, Minotte Fil, Minotte Swash and Minotte Swash Fil support an extended European character set.
