Publications - Parachute® on Tuesday, September 04th, 2012

The new issue of Slanted magazine is focused on super families (large typeface families) and their amazing range of variations.

These families are characterized by a variety of cuts, which spread open to extremes such as Hairline to Ultra Black and Compressed to Extended. In addition, immediate relatives are also represented such as Sans Serif, Semi Serif, Slab, Rounded, etc.

The new issue comes packed with numerous wonderful photographs, essays and reports as well as special interviews with expert professionals, such as Nadine Chahine, Ian Party, Yanone and Ivo Gabrowitsch. Besides several historic families which are featured, the eight page fold-out cover presents something really cool: a geneology of the best type super families, edited by Indra Kupferschmid. In another interview, Panos Vassiliou from Parachute talks about the award winning typefaces: Centro Pro and Regal Pro.

Regal Pro is a Red Dot winning typeface and was originally created for the redesign of Grazia magazine. Later it was upgraded for further commercial use and the three basic families were expanded to include more variations, ligatures, swashes and additional support for Cyrillic and Greek. The final version includes 5 families (Regal FinesseRegal SwashRegal Display, Regal Text, Regal Stencil).

Centro Pro is a European Design Awards winning typeface and was characterized by the jury as an almost ‘invisible’ typeface with distinct personality. It has a range of weights that is ideal for a wide range of design works and fulfill its purpose while not attracting any unnecessary attention. Centro Pro includes 3 families. (Centro Serif, Centro Sans, Centro Slab)
