Exo Slab Pro
Ndiscovered foundry is obviously one of those foundries where quality is far more important than quantity. With a short list of only 3 families they give a real proof what really matters in type design. Their latest Exo Slab Pro makes no exception. It’s a very modern-looking slab serif family featuring 9 weights and corresponding true Italics. Exo Slab Pro uses geometrical skeleton where pure circle could not be seen – clean curves, round shapes, slab serifs & specific counters are the real reason why this family looks so fresh, different and contemporary. Increased x-height with smooth contrast grades provide plenty of options when it comes to legibility – used even on low resolution screen or in poor print conditions, Exo has excellent performance throughout the whole contrast range from Thin to Black.
When functionality meets originality in the aspects of graphic design and visual arts in general a typeface like Exo Slab Pro becomes a real best friend. The high contrast weights with its closed apertures and thick strokes are very usable for strong and masculine headlines and if you still need more energy and concentrated power you could try the Bold and Black Italics – they will surely surprise you with their muscles and expressive presence. Favorite choice for attractive t-shirts, typographic posters and logos. A single letter used in large size is sometimes quite enough to make your work perfect!
The Light weights are more elegant with more visible geometry yet very legible, sharp and clean. You’d love to use them in smaller sizes where you could benefit their optimized curves. Very useful for longer text paragraphs in small-sized columns as well as for packaging, labels, etc.
If you use OpenType compatible software, you will get even more from Exo Slab Pro as it is fully equipped with extra set for ligatures, multilingual support, currency and other special symbols, dedicated small caps and many other extras.
All in all Exo Slab Pro is a family with very diverse use – starting from modern editorial design with 18 fonts inside the family Exo could be easily used for e-books, magazines, newspapers, annual reports etc. Due to its enhanced readability it is also perfect for screen use in mobile apps, web sites, UI & UX. Very useful this highly appreciated family is an excellent example of perfect integrity between modernity, functionality and authentic original look.
