The Conto Super Family is a powerful and clear typeface for complex corporate typography. The 64 fonts give you a wide range of flexibility to fulfill every typographical need. From essential reading text, captions and tables the Conto Family works also fine at large advertisement or packaging. Conto is simple, serious and elegant without losing its independence.
An almost never seen before set of ligatures make the fonts useful for logos and lettering!
Main characteristic are the minimalistic and reduced lowercase shapes (a, b, d, g, m, n, p, q, r, u). Another specific feature is the rising contrast. Whereas you can not find any contrast in the Thin weight, you will find more and more contrast while climbing up to Black.
Conto’s special ligatures are made for logo-types and lettering. Therefore you find Discretionary Ligatures like r_a, e_i, s_t_u or r_i and many more!!! Try the OT-feature ss01. Maybe there is something nice for your next logo.
The family includes 64 fonts with four widths from compressed over condensed and narrow to the standard. Each width includes 8 weights from elegant thin to strong black weight.
Each font contains around 880 glyphs and supports all Latin-script based languages. It also includes small-caps and all kind of figures you need for serious typography. Of course, you have case and small-cap sensitive punctuation and fractions up to 1/9 (one ninth).
In remembrance of Peter Bruhn! Actually Conto should be published at the fountain foundry. During my studies in The Hague I interviewed Peter. The interview is collected in the book 158 answers. Towards this we had a nice exchange about my typeface. After some corrections he decided to release Conto. Thanks you for your help, Peter!!!
