Conto Slab - a significant font for corporate design

Conto Slab - a further family member of the sans serif Conto.

Conto Slab is an individual and significant slab serif typeface in eight weights (upright, italic). It is mainly designed for corporate identity along with the editorial design and advertising. A special set of ligatures make the fonts very useful for logo type and lettering.

The sporty Thin and the powerful Black weights are working well in display typography, while the Regular, Medium and Bold weights are meant to stay well in text and tables.

Main characteristic are the serif but spurless lowercase shapes (a/b/d/g/m/n/p/q/r/u). Another specific feature is the rising contrast. Whereas you can not find any contrast in the Thin weight, you will find more and more contrast while climbing up to Black.

Enjoy the extraordinary italics! They are not just slanted slab obliques, they are a mixture of real italics and slanted shapes. Have a look!

Conto Slabs special ligatures are made for logo-types and lettering. Therefore you find around 100 discretionary ligatures like ‘cl’, ‘en', ‘rx’ or ‘sty’ and many more!! Try the OT-feature ss01. Maybe there is something nice for your next logo.

Each font contains around 850 glyphs and supports all latin-script based languages. It also includes small-caps and all kind of figures you need for serious typography. Of course you have case and small-cap sensitive punctuation even arrows and fractions up to 1/9.

Conto Slab is a further version of the sans serif font Conto. Both are perfectly harmonized and contain almost the same character set. That makes them very useful for larger projects.
