Tautz

 

Design date: 2014

 

A concept-driven serif font family of 5 weights. It is a contemporary take on the humanist serif with a touch of rationality and frivolity. Tautz began its life as a research into collective British Style & Heritage, as the pursuit of capturing “Britishness” without falling into the trap of stereotyping. Tautz is a personal reflection of Mariya V. Pigoulevskaya, resulting in a functional & characterful font family. Tautz features lowered x-height with an intention to create tension and resistance on the page or screen for that matter. This counteracts the geometric approach to the glyph construction and the sharpness of serif details. Resulting in a unique typeface that is suitable for text & display. Details include 5 weights, over 470 characters including Cyrillic, ligatures, manually edited kerning and Opentype features.
