Irma Text Round

Design concept

Irma Text Round has been carefully crafted with nuanced curves and a more intimate character than Irma Text. Its edges are round and soft, but the underlying forms are clear and lucid, making it both suitable for display use and legible at small sizes. Each weight behaves differently — the terminals of lighter cuts are completely circular, while the heavier weights are less rounded — yet its appearance is consistent in each weight.

Display, Sans, Slab & Round

Its numerous styles and various construction versions make Irma ideal for the formal requirements of contemporary publishing or giving a unique voice to brand identity projects. With its combination of text and display fonts in two styles (Sans and Slab), and three flavours of text typefaces (Sans, Slab and Round), Irma is a versatile family of fonts, offering a complete palette of typographic choices.

OpenType features

Like all Typotheque fonts, Irma Text includes Small Caps in all styles. Additionally, Irma includes a wealth of other advanced OpenType features. For more information please see the PDF instructions, or the Features section.

Numerals

All weights of Irma Text include eight different kinds of numerals. By default, Irma uses ranging numerals (also called OsF or Old-style proportional figures) designed for setting running text. It also, however, includes lining figures proportioned for use with capital letters, tabular numerals (both lining and OsF), superior, inferior, circled and circled inverted numerals (selectable via OpenType features)

Language support

Typotheque’s OpenType Pro fonts support all European languages, covering Latin-based (Western, Central and Eastern European, Baltic, Turkish), Cyrillic-based, and Greek-based languages. Such large multilingual fonts are sometimes referred to as Pan-European or WGL4 fonts.

Author

Irma Text was designed in 2009–2011 by Peter Biľak with Nikola Djurek. The Cyrillic version was adapted by Alexander Tarbeev.
