Cern is a family of 40 weights of neutral, yet formally nuanced grotesk typefaces that takes inspiration from Helvetica, Akzidenz Grotesk, Univers and the original metal types from Switzerland, yet has a slightly larger x-height for more pronounced legibility.
Each weight is designed to be highly readable in print and on-screen. The italic variations are true italics, having a single-storied italic a and have been designed for smooth, fluid reading and text-setting. Lovingly spaced and kerned, the Cern family works equally well for text typesetting and for display design work.
The entire family is comprised of a range of weights and a matching display family that features rounded terminals for large-scale display work.
The entire Cern family is available for $120 – a significant discount compared to single prices and family prices from other distributors.
The user license applies to single-user desktop use or a single webfont license for all members of the Cern family. If you’d like to license the Cern family for desktop and webfont use, you will need to acquire two licenses.
