TypeType foundry was established as one of the very first dedicated type foundries in St. Petersburg. Alexander Kudryavtsev and Ivan Gladkikh launched TypeType in 2013, enjoying a great deal of success over the years that have since passed. They’ve worked with international corporations that include Acer, Lego, and McDonald’s, and they release type designs that suit the needs of the contemporary design market.
Through TypeType, Alexander and Ivan put a strong emphasis on crafting type designs that maintain a high degree of functionality while remaining relevant to modern aesthetics. They also focus on ensuring extensive language support to cater to an international market. Fonts from TypeType typically offer a fluid range of weights and widths, designed for optimal performance in the field.
One of their most recent releases is TT Polls, a modern slab serif with a decidedly collegiate edge, combined with a handwritten connective script that acts as an unexpectedly perfect accompaniment. Based around the theme of sports and university, this type design is well suited for athletic apparel and college merchandise, branding, identity, logos, and product packaging. While it’s geared toward sports, it’s surprisingly appropriate for more casual design projects, as well.
The slab serif offers five weights that range from Thin to Black with corresponding italics for each. Script is available in Thin, Light, Regular, Bold, and Black for great design versatility. TT Polls provides a host of additional features that include case sensitive forms, discretionary ligatures, standard ligatures, fractions, numerators, denominators, and tabular figures, along with contextual and stylistic alternates. Script offers swash for every character within the basic Latin and Cyrillic alphabets. In true TypeType form, TT Polls extends multilingual support for fantastic global accessibility, covering Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Romanian, Pan African Latin, Latin Ligatures, and Basic Cyrillic.
Right now through August 10, 2017, TT Polls is on sale for 80% off of its regular price so it’s a great time to score this one. Game on!
