First – Stendo font has a vintage look – something that is always in fashion. Fonts like this never leave the stage, moreover – there is a trend of reviving vintage type and using it for modern designs. Second – looking vintage doesn’t mean old and useless – Stendo is designed with attractive and contemporary slab serifs skillfully optimized to feat each of the letters. Third – Stendo is developed in 6 different weights which makes it even more useful especially when it comes to be more precise in the contrast of the texts. Furthermore – light weights are perfect for elegant large words, regulars are best for text paragraphs and columns while the bold versions are ideal for strong display headlines. Remember that Stendo is designed with enhanced readability so it is equally very useful for print and screen graphics. No. 4 – Stendo is fully Open Type compatible showing a large set of alternates, ligatures and multilingual characters. And speaking of different languages, it is time to say – fifth – Stendo is equipped with well designed Cyrillic alphabet – something still rare but very useful for big markets like Russia and Eastern Europe.
Overall conclusion – excellent font family. Good incorporation of classic vintage letter-forms with modern slab serifs. Excellent for text and display use.
