Baton Turbo

Author:

»Baton Turbo« ist die neue Schrift von Fatype. Sie basiert auf der zuvor veröffentlichten Schrift Baton. Jedoch ist Baton Turbo wandelbarer als ihr Vorgänger. Sie lässt sich vielfältig im Print- sowie Digitalbereich einsetzen und übernimmt dabei die grundlegenden Charakteristiken der Baton. Zusätzlich hat Fatype zum Release von Baton Turbo eine Microwebsite entworfen.

Baton Turbo is a grotesque that combines a simple straightforward formal approach, with eccentric letter shapes inspired by french vernacular typography. We love the naive and unpretentious elegance of our previously released Baton, but the small x-height and condensed proportions make it very specific: it is essentially intended for display sizes and short texts. We wanted to adapt Baton into a versatile typeface, while maintaining as much of the original character as possible. All the design choices – the proportions, the spacing, the number of weights – have been made for Baton Turbo to work well in the various settings that modern typography, both print and digital, present.
