- SALE! USD $120.00 for all 40 weights (instant download)
- Ian Lynam
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.
(Note: Cern has been updated on September 1, 2021 for optimized usability in Figma and in use as a webfont.)
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.
All Wordshape typefaces are provided in desktop OpenType (.otf), TrueType (.ttf) and web font (.eot, .ttf, .woff, .woff2) formats and will be included in your immediately downloaded .zip file.
