P22 Zebra font family


Designed by Karlgeorg Hoefer in 2008
Colin Kahn in 2008
Karlgeorg Hoefer's most unusual type face was probably his experiment with a brush face which he designed as a partly black and partly grey drawing. The optical effect of this typeface was completely new and different, but how should the grey be produced? The punch cutters of D. Stempel AG had an answer. The areas that should be grey were made from cross hatched lines: The typeface was released by D. Stempel AG and appropriately named »Zebra«.
In 2008 P22 designer Colin Kahn made a new digital version which is based on the original drawings. He made also a wedged and a stencil version and added several color shape layers (A, B, C) that the give the user a broad variety to color and shape the words.

Features

Kerning

Tag: kern

Function: Adjusts amount of space between glyphs, generally to provide optically consistent spacing between glyphs. Although a well-designed typeface has consistent inter-glyph spacing overall, some glyph combinations require adjustment for improved legibility. Besides standard adjustment in the horizontal direction, this feature can supply size-dependent kerning data via device tables, "cross-stream" kerning in the Y text direction, and adjustment of glyph placement independent of the advance adjustment. Note that this feature may apply to runs of more than two glyphs, and would not be used in monospaced fonts. Also note that this feature does not apply to text set vertically. The o is shifted closer to the T in the combination "To."
