Spezia Serif

Spezia Serif is the typeface that fits. Built to give the designer flexibility for every thinkable use. From a small five point text on a footnote up to large elegant magazine titles. This typeface can do it all, thanks to its 144 font-weights. 

Spezia Serif is build on diligent study of the emblematic transitional typefaces from the turn of the 19th century. Yet, the font has a contemporary appearance and feels modern due its focus on the reduction to the essential in each shape.

The headline version (A) is sleek with a lot of contrast and fine details. In opposition stands the version (D) for small texts, which opens up forms and turns shapes in to a more monolinear design.

Together with her sanserif sibling (Spezia) is the typeface a unique and extensive typographic system. Spezia Serif is available as standard version and as Variable Font.

Variable Fonts are used with axes rather than fixed font weights. The font is built on three axes, Weight (Book → Black), Width (Condensed → Normal) and Opticial Size (A for 34 point → D for 4 point). In the design process, I focused on the best interpolation. Each shape flows continuously from slight to strong, from fine to pronounced. Spezia Serif opens a new range of possibilities for web typography. Internet Bandwidth limits the use of a wide range of font‑weights on one website. For example Spezia Serif Complete Upright is one single lightweight font‑file (153KB Book → Black and A → D). This makes Spezia Serif an excellent tool for responsive design.
