About Aptifer® Slab font family

Aptifer Sans and Aptifer Slab are two 21st century typeface families created by Mårten Thavenius. Each family has seven weights, in roman and italic respectively, making 28 font styles in total. Each OpenType font contains 922 glyphs, with a total of 25,816 glyphs in both families together. The following codepages are fully supported in Aptifer: 1252 Latin 1, 1250 Latin 2: Eastern Europe, 1254 Turkish, and 1257 Baltic.

A heritage from two design traditions can be seen in Aptifer. One is the robust American gothic typefaces, like M. F. Benton's, from around 1900. This is combined with the openness and legibility that comes from the humanist tradition.

The sans serif part of the family, Aptifer Sans Com, is designed without excessive details disturbing the reading. Its sibling Aptifer Slab Com with its wedge slab serifs is more eye-catching but still suited for text settings. The italics fit well into the text flow of the roman. They are a bit narrower than the roman and have cursive characteristics.

Both Aptifer Sans Com and Aptifer Slab Com are highly legible typefaces and can be used both in print and on screen.

The Aptifer families have a wide range of possible usage covering body text and display settings. You may use it for newspapers and magazines, for book typography, corporate design or signage.

Aptifer is an OpenType Com family and each font style has support for Western European, Central European, Turkish, and Baltic languages. A wide range of glyph variants are accessible through OpenType features including small caps, ligatures, lower- and uppercase ordinals, and eight sets of figures. You will also find two sets of arrows and other usable symbols in the fonts.
