Type Gallery – Cachet

Font Designer: Dave Farey
According to designer David Farey, “Cachet™ is a monospaced, monostroke typeface – that isn’t.” Why the sleight of hand? Typefaces that are limited to a single character and stroke width suffer in terms of legibility. Farey’s goal in drawing Cachet was to create a typeface that gives the illusion of monospacing, while delivering a subliminal dose of reader-friendliness.
At first glance, Cachet appears to be constructed of straight and nearly-straight strokes. A closer look, however, reveals several subtleties. Curved strokes have an almost calligraphic spontaneity. Places where character strokes meet are tapered slightly, while stroke ends have been flared. These quiet deviations from geometric uniformity give the design a human, organic, and decidedly non-digital look. An added benefit is that the subtle design modulation benefits readability.
Farey’s subtle design modulation results in a legible and highly usable new typeface.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
