A Modern Slab Serif: Quitador from Arne Freytag

Arne Freytag's Quitador is a modern slab serif that mirrors the zeitgeist. The robust and very well-equipped font appears trustworthy, reliable and confident, and can be used in the most diverse range of applications.
It is no accident that the letter "Q" is the first letter in the name of the font, Quitador. Freytag designed the upper-case "Q" as the first letter of the new font and derived the other characters from it.
With few exceptions, Quitador was designed as a monolinear font, so that only a few letters have careful variations in the weights. Moreover, the shape of the superellipse plays a central role and lends the letters a somewhat technical, designed character. Numerous and in some cases lively details interrupt this formal appearance. The starts of several curves are offset slightly and have semicircular ends. In this way, Freytag not only creates more white space, but also gives the letters "a" very unique and particular character. For example, "h", "m" or "n" recall stencil lettering, while "b" or "q" appear as if they were constructed from a single line. With another interesting detail, the serifs added to only one side of the foot on the "h", "m" or "n", for example, Freytag hints at the line ends of a script font and brings warmth to Quitador. Round dots also emphasize this friendly flair.
A large x-height not only creates space in the letters for extra-bold styles, but also lends Quitador an open and generous character in the more narrow and semi-bold versions. The legibility of the font also benefits from this design trait in the smaller font sizes.
Along with the upright styles, Quitador has a true italic. The lightly tilted letters have round, extended line ends, which lends them a soft and dynamic character while allowing them to maintain their shape extensively. Only the lower-case "a" changes to the closed variant; the "f" gets a descender and the "e" is designed so as to be more round.
With seven weights, Quitador covers an enormous bandwidth, from Ultra Light to Ultra Bold, and as a result is suited to the most diverse applications. In headlines, the font can set the tone, thanks to its distinctive details; in the smaller sizes, it is also easily legible. In the more narrow styles and the italic, the humanist character of Quitador is on display and lends the font a particularly friendly character.
Use Quitador for headings on posters or as a reading font in magazines, for example. Quitador also cuts a fine figure on the Web or on mobile devices.

Features

Languages

Denominators

Tag: dnom

Function: Replaces selected figures which follow a slash with denominator figures. In the string 11/17 selected by the user, the application turns the 17 into denominators when the user applies the fraction feature.

Fractions

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.

Numerators

Tag: numr

Function: Replaces selected figures which precede a slash with numerator figures, and replaces the typographic slash with the fraction slash. In the string 11/17 selected by the user, the application turns the 11 into numerators, and the slash into a fraction slash when the user applies the fraction feature.

Proportional Figures

Tag: pnum

Function: Replaces figure glyphs set on uniform (tabular) widths with corresponding glyphs set on glyph-specific (proportional) widths. Tabular widths will generally be the default, but this cannot be safely assumed. Of course this feature would not be present in monospaced designs. The user may apply this feature to get even spacing for lining figures used as dates in an all-cap headline.

Scientific Inferiors

Tag: sinf

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with inferior figures (smaller glyphs which sit lower than the standard baseline, primarily for chemical or mathematical notation). May also replace lowercase characters with alphabetic inferiors. The application can use this feature to automatically access the inferior figures (more legible than scaled figures).

Superscript

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.

Tabular Figures

Tag: tnum

Function: Replaces figure glyphs set on proportional widths with corresponding glyphs set on uniform (tabular) widths. Tabular widths will generally be the default, but this cannot be safely assumed. Of course this feature would not be present in monospaced designs. The user may apply this feature to get oldstyle figures to align vertically in a column.

Subscript

Tag: subs

Function: The "subs" feature may replace a default glyph with a subscript glyph, or it may combine a glyph substitution with positioning adjustments for proper placement. Recommended implementation: First, a single or contextual substitution lookup implements the subscript glyph (GSUB lookup type 1). Then, if the glyph needs repositioning, an application may apply a single adjustment, pair adjustment, or contextual adjustment positioning lookup to modify its position.

Capital Spacing

Tag: cpsp

Function: Globally adjusts inter-glyph spacing for all-capital text. Most typefaces contain capitals and lowercase characters, and the capitals are positioned to work with the lowercase. When capitals are used for words, they need more space between them for legibility and esthetics. This feature would not apply to monospaced designs. Of course the user may want to override this behavior in order to do more pronounced letterspacing for esthetic reasons. The user sets a title in all caps, and the Capital Spacing feature opens the spacing.

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."
