About the T-Star Typeface

T-Star’s features include low-contrast, uniform line width, laterally flattened, round basic forms, as well as cut-back ascenders and descenders. It’s a plain, technical-style typeface that is slender in its proportions and highly economical when it comes to the space taken up by body text. Its appearance is marked by openness and individual characters show surprisingly unconventional features. Where predetermined patterns and systems proved unsatisfactory, shapes were interpreted intuitively, but stringently.
