The Torrent family is a multi-purpose typeface with large wedge-formed serifs. Its letters have large x-height and wide-open counterforms. Some joins have been opened up, too – between the straights and the diagonals of ‘K’ and ‘k,’ as well as the vertical center of the ‘R,’ for instance. Torrent’s letterforms have a higher stroke-contrast model, one that is typical for serif typefaces that are intended for use in lengthy passages of text. Indeed, Torrent is a highly readable text face and will look clear even when used in less-than-optimal printing situations (cheaper paper and ink, high-speed presses, etc.). In smaller sizes, Torrent’s wedge-shaped serifs won’t suffer any loss of detail. In fact, wedges of this sort are a hallmark of contemporary serif type design. Torrent is an excellent serif choice for use in book design or editorial design work, as well as in magazines, packaging, and publication design applications.
