The Lumin family
The Lumin family includes slab-serif, sans serif, 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 chiseled, 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.
Lumin Display completes the family’s typographic palette with a headline version of the slab-serif face in three different widths. Its letters are spaced tightly to create convincing blocks of bylines, headers or any short text.
Like all Typotheque fonts, Lumin includes Small Caps in all styles. Additionally, Lumin includes a wealth of other advanced OpenType features. For more information please see the PDF instructions, or the Features section.
All weights of Lumin include eight different kinds of numerals. Proportional lining figures, which are most commonly used in newspapers and magazines settings, come as default figures in Lumin. It also, however, includes Old-style figures, tabular numerals (both lining and OsF), superior, inferior, circled and circled inverted numerals (selectable via OpenType features)
The Lumin family was designed in 2013 by Nikola Djurek.
