TT Cometus

About font family

Introducing TT Cometus, version 2.000, which now supports Cyrillic alphabets! We significantly enhanced the font’s character set and technical features.

TT Cometus is a modern slab serif. The typeface’s name evokes the image of a comet—a powerful and weighty celestial body with a beautiful tail slicing through space at an incredible speed. This is the key to understanding this font.

TT Cometus embodies a balanced personality: impressive and sturdy but energetic and dynamic at the same time. When designing this typeface, we aimed to incorporate heavy serifs typical for slabs into a modern and dynamic appearance. To achieve this, we combined sturdy details with completely opposite shapes, added a handmade feel, and drew inspiration from brush movements in calligraphy.

So, TT Cometus stands out for its sharp terminals resembling comet tails, which are particularly noticeable in the letters c, y, e, and t. Another curious detail is the stylized junctions of arcs and bowls that add fluidity to the font. Also, the typeface’s sturdy serifs allow it to maintain stability. The font features a slight contrast between horizontal and vertical element weights and a high contrast in serifs, junctions, and glyph terminals.

The enhanced version of the typeface boasts long-awaited Cyrillic alphabet support, new stylistic sets and OpenType features, entirely reworked kerning, and improved hinting.

TT Cometus shines best in large point sizes. This font is anything but neutral! It’s eye-catching and looks flawless in headlines, logos, and branding — wherever attention needs to be captured.

The updated TT Cometus includes:

  • 5 font styles: 4 upright and one variable font with a weight variation axis;
  • 1000 characters in each font style;
  • 33 OpenType features, counting in numerous ligatures and sets of alternate ampersand and letter g glyphs;
  • 230+ languages support.

The naming of the font family refers to a flying comet

TT Cometus font family was originally conceived as a super display slab serif. If powerful and heavy serifs are essential for creating a slab serif, then why not to combine them with directly opposite forms and make the font family more dinamic? That’s how TT Cometus got the distinctive undercuts where the vertical stroke joins the serif. These undercuts were needed to make the typeface more man-made, not machine-like, as well as to create tension in the elements of the letters and to set important accents.

Ideal font pairs with TT Cometus

What is a font pair, and what does it serve for?

A font pair is a combination of two fonts within one text block. Most often, one of the fonts in a pair is a more expressive headline font, and the other one serves to communicate information. Such fonts complement each other and help designers solve various tasks, like highlighting key elements, adding emotional expressiveness to the project, or separating semantic blocks.

How to choose fonts for a project: Several general recommendations

To begin with, establish the project's tone. Choose the fonts that stylistically match the main idea. After that, you need to determine the functions of each font in the project and their hierarchy: which font will complement the design and which one will serve to attract attention as the main element. You need to assess the difference between the fonts and decide what kind of information each of them should convey. First, we recommend choosing the base font you will use most, and then you can find a suitable pair for it.

Core principles of font pairing and recommendations from designers

The main rule you should follow when matching two fonts is that both similarities and differences must be visible between them. You can highlight the coherence of fonts by the following characteristics: contrast, proportions, width, openness of characters, individual letter shapes, and overall tone. Feel free to experiment with different combinations. We also recommend analyzing the projects you like: this way, you can enhance your visual skills, elevate your knowledge base, and gain confidence in dealing with typography.
