Every once in a while something new gets added to an old standby. In this case, a tough slab serif has been jolted with a strong shot of exuberant flourishes. TypeTogether is proud to announce Molto — another significant release by Xavier Dupré. Molto is a slab serif font with large sections of stalwart concrete that are tempered by thin mohair connections. Its nine roman weights ensure posters and magazine headlines receive an elevated and contrasting treatment and captions are as legible as normal text. Grab a coffee and wake your eyes with a powerful and gentle take on slab fonts.Learn More
Our core team is constituted by some of the top individuals in their respective fields. In the first of a short series, type designer Azza Alameddine of Adelle Sans Arabic fame, writes about the parts of letterforms in Arabic script. English terminology for Latin-based type is clear and mostly settled, but in other languages there is no such clear consensus. So how do multi-script type users and designers discuss specific letterform parts? Here we offer proposals toward a standard in type anatomy, with future instalments covering Devanagari, Greek, Latin, and more, so be on the lookout for those.Learn More

We’d like to announce Protipo’s own minisite, developed by Kenneth Ormandy with design input by Cesár Sesio and the TypeTogether team. Try out Protipo’s display style, its three widths, and its icon sets in a live web environment that you can control! Make the characters stretch to fill space, shrink to add more letters to a line, and perform the “jumps” as its internal space changes. When you’ve realised how well it can work for your information design needs, grab the licence to this advanced family.Learn More
Note: The minisite features work best in the newest operating systems and the newest browsers, so make sure you are up to date to get the full experience.
