Type Gallery – Montix
Font Designer: Diana Fischer, 2003
Montix™ is a narrow, constructed type family, developed by the German designer Diana Fischer in 2003. With five weights (light, light italic, regular, regular italic, and bold), Montix is a particularly effective small family, especially when used for headline or display purposes. Montix’s letterforms have relatively long ascenders and descenders, which compared with its horizontally compact body gives it its unique style. Words or lines of text set in Montix would look best when some amount of white space is left around them. Because of this, the faces are well suited for logos and corporate identity uses (corporations that are forward thinking and “with it,” of course).
