Font Family: Factoria, Number of fonts: 16*OTF, Type Foundry: Fort Foundry, Designer: Mattox Shuler, Design date: 2014
Born out of Industry, Factoria is a geometric, square slab. The hard-working family can jump from the side of an industrial building and into a sports magazine in a jiffy. The lighter weights exhibit a clean, no-nonsense vibe while the thicker weights exude strength and character. Italics felt like a necessity as the square slab genre and its uses call for type on the move. The set intentionally doesn’t diverge far from the roman style and includes visual corrections as needed.
Factoria includes eight weights ranging from Thin to Ultra with corresponding italics. The slab serif pairs great with its sans-serif counterpart, Industry.
Numerous OpenType features have been included to suit different design needs. Features include: Tabular figures, fractions, subscripts, superscripts, numerators, and denominators.
