Supernova

Design concept

Supernova is a family that combines the spontaneity of a script typeface with the versatility of multiple weights and cuts. Read more about development of Supernova

Poster version

The Poster version features expressive, flamboyant shapes, exploring variations in contrast, weight and style. Text version, on the other hand includes more subtle letterforms that could work smoothly within the text flow. Intended for display purposes, Supernova Poster is an extroverted cut. Unlike the text version it contains many alternates per character, two styles of alternate capitals and an expressive ductus.

OpenType features

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

Numerals

All weights of Supernova include eight different kinds of numerals. By default, Supernova 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)
