Lumin Sans is a straight-talking collection of six weights ranging from Hairline to Bold (or a continuous weight available as variable fonts). The simplified letter construction proves distinctive in the heavier styles, where the sharpness of the stroke connection establishes the personality of this typeface. Lumin Sans also works reliably in long continuous text blocks, or can be used in branding thanks to its distinctive design features.
The Lumin family
The Lumin family includes a slab-serif, a sans-serif, a condensed and display typefaces, all of which play with the idea of contradiction. The contrast between horizontal and vertical strokes seems to be quite subtle, evoking the slab serifs of the past century. The stroke connections, however, are sharply chiselled, reminiscent of high-contrast modern types, an effect especially pronounced in the heavier weights. The result is hybrid letterforms that look almost like stencil drawings, yet maintain high legibility at the smallest sizes.
Each weight of Lumin Sans includes eight different kinds of numerals. Proportional lining figures come as default figures in Lumin. It also, however, includes old-style figures, tabular numerals (both lining and old-style), superior, inferior, circled and circled inverted numerals. For the running text, old-style figures work best; for use in capital setting, use lining figures. When you take a licence for this font, you can choose the default numeral variants inside the fonts.

smcpMost Typotheque fonts implement the Small Caps feature. In Adobe applications you can replace lower case letters with small caps using the keyboard shortcut (⌘ + ⇧ + H), or the OpenType menu.
All Small Capitals
smcp, c2scThere are two methods of applying small capitals. The first one replaces only lower case letters with small caps. The second method, All Small Caps, also replaces capital letters with small caps. It also replaces regular quotation marks, exclamation points, question marks, slashes and usually also numerals with small caps variants.
Case Sensitive Forms
caseWhen the ‘change to caps’ function is applied from within an application (not when text is typed in caps) appropriate case-sensitive forms are automatically applied. Regular brackets, parenthesis, dashes and hyphens are replaced with their capital forms.
Circled numerals and arrows
dligThe discretionary ligature feature creates real arrows when you type the combination -> (right arrow), <- (left arrow), -^ (up arrow) or ^- (down arrow). It also creates enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside parenthesis, and inverse enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside brackets. Discretionary ligatures are off by default in Adobe applications.
ligaStandard ligatures are those which are designed to improve the readability of certain letter pairs. For example, when this feature is activated, typing ‘f’ and ‘i’ will automatically produce the ‘fi’ ligature. Using ligatures does not affect the spelling and hyphenation of your text in any way.
Proportional Old-style Figures
onum, pnumTypotheque fonts contain various styles of numerals within one font. Proportional Lining Figures come standard in all our headline and newspaper fonts. Their proportions are specifically designed to work well with capital letters (for example, in headlines). The proportional Old-style Figures feature changes standard figures to Old-style Figures which work well in running text, as they have the same proportions as lower case letters with their ascenders and descenders.
Tabular Lining Figures
lnum, tnumTabular figures are for use in tables where numerals need to be aligned vertically. Tabular figures are available as a OpenType feature and have a fixed width in all weights. Typotheque fonts include both Lining and Old-style Tabular figures.
Tabular Old-style Figures

fracTypotheque OpenType fonts already include a number of pre-designed diagonal fractions. The fraction feature allows you to create other fractions quickly and easily.
supsReplaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their superior alternates, which can be used for footnotes, formulas, etc. Superior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text.
sinfReplaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their inferior alternates, used primarily for mathematical or chemical notation. Inferior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text
