Multi-Genre Type Family
Relaate is a multi-genre type family by Alex Slobzheninov. It’s a bundle of fonts which share certain features while each of them is much more independent and unique than it might be expected from a type family.
Each member of the Relaate family is an individual: Elegant serif, brutal slab, and quirky tall grotesque. For now—the family might get new styles in future. All of the fonts treat the family characteristics in different ways which are natural for each genre. It’s easily visible by comparing such letters as a, e, t, f, r—and many others.
This approach gives the Relaate a wide range of use. The fonts are meant to be used together, independently, or in combinations with others. But Relaate is not a workhorse; actually quite the opposite—a specific type for specific projects. Obviously, its main use is headlines, posters, logotypes and other eye-catching display usages. Nevertheless, the Serif version can handle mid-sized body copy surprisingly well.
