Description

Description

Stag was designed by Christian Schwartz in 2005 for the US edition of Esquire, and have been two of our most popular families ever since their release in 2007. We had many requests for Cyrillic and Greek support for these families, so starting in 2012 we began collaborations with Russian type designer Ilya Ruderman in Moscow (who also drew the delicate Austin Cyrillic) and Greek type designer Panos Haratzopoulos outside Athens. The result is Cyrillic and Greek versions of Stag that seamlessly blend with Schwartz’s original Latin version, while reflecting current conventions and contemporary approaches to type design in Greece and countries that use the Cyrillic alphabet, being neither overly Westernized or overly reverent to past traditions.
Stag add to the small but growing number of typefaces with native support for Bulgarian and Serbian Cyrillic, which differ significantly from the Russian forms. Stag can be licensed with Greek or Cyrillic support, or in an “LCG” (for “Latin/Cyrillic/Greek”) version that supports all three alphabets. All three versions include support for all languages covered by our standard Latin character set.
Stag mixes the contemporary taste for large x-heights and quirky details with influences from continental Egyptians of the early twentieth century. With more overt personality than a more sober family like Guardian Egyptian, Stag is perfect for situations that
need a little more distinction in typographic dress.
