Valter is a graceful and slightly cheeky collection of sans-serif display fonts inspired by pointed-pen writing. Constructed on a monolinear skeleton, it offers seven weights that incrementally increase the contrast between the horizontal and vertical strokes. The thin styles appear wider, while the heavier weights feel normally proportioned, as only the interiors of the letters gain weight. Valter also includes narrower, cursive italics, as well as small caps and advanced OpenType layout features, creating a refined type family of 16 styles.
Like all Typotheque fonts, Valter includes Small Caps in all styles. Additionally, Valter includes a wealth of other advanced OpenType features. For more information please see the PDF instructions, or the Features section.
All weights of Valter include nine different kinds of numerals. Proportional Old-Style figures come as default figures in Valter. It also, however, includes Lining figures, Tabular numerals (both lining and OsF), Small Caps figures, superior, inferior, circled and circled inverted numerals (selectable via OpenType features).
The Valter family was designed in 2014 by Nikola Djurek. Valter was selected by the judges to receive the “Certificate of Typographic Excellence” at the Type Directors Club 2015
