Cormac is a humanist typeface characterized with it’s large x-height and slightly flared stems. The word that best describes our ideas in the beginning of the project is “simple” – the idea behind it was to strip the letter forms of everything unnecessary, and yet keep the typeface interesting.
The typeface is friendly without being too cheezy thanks to its humanistic character, flared ascenders and stems reminding of its calligraphic origin. The proportions are closer to the traditional old style typefaces. Cormac is open and readable typeface coming in 7 weights plus their matching ‘true’ italics – from Extra Thin to Bold.
The family comes with Cyrillic support (Bulgarian Cyrillic – by default, Serbian Cyrillic – as a local feature and through style sets, Macedonian Cyrillic – as a local feature and through style sets, Russian Cyrillic – as a local feature and through style sets), great range of numerals, fractions, ligatures, alternates and a lot of special characters making Cormac a great solution for greate range of design work – branding, editorial, web & wayfinding.
