Museo: an extensive contemporary, topical and fashionable font familyThe extensive font family Museo by Jos Buivenga now comprises four different styles. These have been carefully coordinated with each other so that designers can use the original Museo in combination with Museo Slab, Museo Sans and Museo Sans Rounded. But the best thing about Museo is that we are currently offering a selection of cuts free of charge so that you can experiment with them!
In addition to majuscule and minuscule numerals, Museo also offers a range of ligatures and variant characters: German typographers will be pleased to discover that it has a majuscule ‘ß’ glyph.
Museo is available in five different weights that are designated as 100, 300, 500, 700 and 900. Italic cuts with inclined characters are available in all weights.
Museo Sans also shares its basic character forms with those of Museo. Because of the lack of variation in line width, Sans has a geometrical appearance. It is not only possible to combine the robust and highly legible Sans with Museo, but it can also be used in both display and text font sizes. In common with Museo, Museo Sans comes in five weights, each with matching Italic cuts.
Museo Sans Rounded
The youngest member of the Museo family bears the name Museo Sans Rounded. It is basically identical to Museo Sans, but its line terminals are rounded. This contemporary variant of the typeface is particularly effective in larger font sizes. Like its ancestor, Museo Slab, Museo Sans Rounded is available in six different weights.
Although the forms of the letters are identical to those of Museo, the blunt serifs of Museo Slab are slightly longer and are frequently not rounded where they join the upstroke, but stand at right angles to it. Together with other serifs, Buivenga has not only managed to augment the specific nature of a serif font, but has thus given Museo Slab a more formal and austere form in comparison with that of Museo. Complemented by another bold weight, Museo Slab 1000, there are thus six weights of Museo Slab with the matching Italic variants.
The diversity of styles within the Museo family ensures that the typeface has a wide range of potential applications. The modern character of the different but matching variants, certain of which are at the cutting-edge of fashion, will help designers react to all possible situations.
To enable you to experiment with Museo yourself and find out just what this font is capable of, we have made several of the cuts available for free download. These comprise Museo 300, Museo 500, Museo 700, Museo Sans 500, Museo Sans 500 Italic, Museo Slab 500, and Museo Slab 500 Italic. So use this opportunity to get to know Museo and its qualities for free.
