Zemestro™ famille de polices

Conçue par Dave Farey en 2003
Zemestro is a straightforward design that is meant to be read. According to its designer, Dave Farey, There's nothing calligraphic about it, and there are no defining or identifiable single characters -- it's just clean and simply constructed."

Farey's goal was to create a more legible and friendlier typeface than those limited to single character and stroke widths. The face finds its foundation in two earlier designs from Farey: Cachet, a soft-terminal sans he drew in 1999, and a partial alphabet he created for the New Scientist, a British scientific journal. Cachet appears to be monospaced and constructed with geometrically precise character strokes, but it isn't. The characters drawn for New Scientific are more condensed and structured than Cachet. Their offspring Zemestro takes on the proportions of the New Scientific letters and builds them into a full typeface family. Round characters have squared shoulders, helping to create visually consistent letter spacing and even typographic color. Terminals are now square and clipped at right angles to the stroke.

The Zemestro family is available in four weights, with complementary italics for the two lightest weights. Text copy in the Book weight is inviting and easy on the eyes, while the Regular is more imposing and authoritative. The Medium and Bold weights are excellent for providing emphasis in text copy and are also strong communicators at display sizes.

The name Zemestro? "I'm always fascinated by typeface names," says Farey. "Most of mine are inspired by movies or books." It was while reading a book on the Russian revolution that Farey learned zemestro was the word for a village council or group of elders, "before Comrade Lenin dissolved them all," he explains. "So this is the first Zemestro since 1917. I thought it was worth reviving.""

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.


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).


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.
