Titanium Motors™ font family


Designed by Jim Ford in 2012

There is almost no other font that conveys a sense of speed better than the bold but dynamic letters of Titanium Motors™ by Steve Matteson. Use this headline font to create exciting software titles, logos and user interfaces.
Titanium Motors hit the road as the result of a computer game project, and this race-simulating font was designed by Steve Matteson on the basis of an original concept by Jim Ford. The sans serif Titanium Motors is a majuscule font. The curves of the synthetic-seeming letters still retain horizontal and vertical sections, and it is thus apparent that they are based on the form of the superellipse. It is the clear contrast between the very thick verticals and thinner horizontals that generates the dynamism of this generously proportioned font.
Somewhat unconventional are the letters 'M' and 'N' as their form is derived from that of the minuscule letters. And German typographers will be pleased to note that the 'ß' is rendered as a double-S.
In addition to Titanium Motors Regular, there is a second weight with slanted letters called Titanium Motors Oblique. The characters are inclined at some 14° (considerably more than the 11° angle more usually employed), providing Titanium Motoique with added energy.
Titanium Motors represents speed, both on the ground and in the air. Its synthetic letters have a suitably technical panache, ensuring that the typeface has returned to its origins and has found a welcoming home in the world of computer games. Its bold and dynamic letters are perfect for use in title designs or short text passages that are intended to communicate a sense of speed.

Features

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.

Discretionary Ligatures

Tag: dlig

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers those ligatures which may be used for special effect, at the user's preference. The glyph for ct replaces the sequence of glyphs c t, or U+322E (Kanji ligature for "Friday") replaces the sequence U+91D1 U+66DC U+65E5.
