TT Slabs. Slab serif, also called «square serif». They originate shortly after the Industrial Revolution (1850), when the advertising industry began to grow.
Slab Serif Fonts
One of the peculiarities of slab serif typefaces is their massive serifs. Serifs in slabs can be rectangular, trapezoidal, or rounded, but unlike in serif typefaces, they stand out with their massiveness.
At present, you can find for different slab fonts in the TypeType library. Each of them has its own flavor and is created for use in a specific niche and to solve a specific task. In addition, this fall we will release one more neutral slab serif font family, which should cover the text family niche. TypeType slab serif fonts list: TT Slabs, TT Slabs Condensed, TT Polls, TT Globs, TT Geekette.
But first things first. The first TypeType slab serif family was TT Slabs which appeared in 2014. TT Slab serifs is characterized by its rather geometric character and serif shapes. A bit later, in 2015 we released the narrow version of the family called TT Slabs Condensed, which was supposed to be a pair to the TT Slab family and help expand its functionality. We wanted the user to use TT Slabs as a heading, subheading, and logotype font, and TT Slabs Condensed to set text blocks when you need to save some space on the layout.
Our second addition to slab fonts in our library was TT Polls. It was a part of a more complex TT Polls family which consisted of a very beautiful script and the slab. The TT Polls family was based on a study of American sports culture and graphics, which has strongly influenced the visuals of both subfamilies. TT Polls Slab is characterized by its modular, narrow, and square ovals. TT Polls Slab looks especially good combined with TT Polls Script.
In addition, our collection also features a purposefully display font, TT Globs. In this project, we have created a very contemporary display font targeted at use in large body sizes in posters and announcements, headings and subheadings, logotypes and branding, as well as on the web. TT Globs is a very bright and fashionable font and has several interesting features, thanks to which its visual perception can be changed.
We also should not forget about the experimental TT Geekette font family, which combines the friendliness of its malleable character shapes and the seriousness of monospace. TT Geekette’s main specialty is variability, thanks to which you can regulate the contrast in the font and choose between monolinearity or bright reverse contrast. In addition to all else, the font can be used in coding panels and for programming.
In fall 2021, our library will gain one more slab font, which will stand out with its neutrality and functionality. The new slab will be targeted for use paired with our bestseller’s sans serif fonts like TT Norms, TT Commons, and TT Hoves as a neutral text font.
