T-Star Typeface


Every now and again a condensed typeface comes around that simply knocks my socks off. T-Star by designer Michael Mischler is one of them. Originally designed for the book Los Logos, T-Star is a condensed sans-serif that features 9 weights and some interesting details like the Q. I love how simple and light the face feels overall.

  1. I too am skeptical about that Q. You can see already that it will visually “fill in” at the bottom, especially at small sizes. Subtle ink traps or simply a redesign might alleviate it.

    There is something quaint and lovely about that /f/…

    all and all great work!
