 Description:
This family was inspired by a Type Battle over at Typophile: How would you design a font metrically compatible with Helvetica, but better than Arial? Working with preset letter widths was an interesting constraint, both a relief and a limitation at the same time.

I have done all the 4 basic weights, and the skewed obliques (done to a slightly less steep 10 degrees angle as opposed to the originals 12) has been optically adjusted. The letters have been designed quite close to the german/swiss grotesk tradition, but by using super-elliptical rounds, rounded dots and slightly curved outer diagonals the end result is a friendly looking font family that still looks... familiar.

Please enjoy the free "Bold" weight. Test out the quality of the outlines and the language support - and then come back for the rest! ;)


Familiar Pro Bold is a professionally reworked font that contains an extended character set for setting text in 65 languages requiring more than the basic A-Z!

 Format Information:
Operating Systems:
Windows Only Windows 2000/XP/Vista or newer is supported - earlier versions have limited Unicode (language) support...
Macintosh Only MacOS X/10 is supported - earlier versions have no Unicode (language) support...

TrueType:
Recommended for
"office" or "home" use
TrueType is the format invented by Apple and Microsoft for their operating systems, so for everyday use this is the format of choice.
Select if you primarily work in Microsoft Office programs like Word, PowerPoint, Excel - or similar.
OpenType:
Recommended for
"graphic design" use
OpenType is the new format made by Adobe and Microsoft - it is based on TrueType technology, but contains Postscript outlines.
Select if you primarily work in graphic design programs like Adobe CSs InDesign, PhotoShop or Illustrator - or Quark7.
Postscript:
Not recommended!
(and not supplied ;)
The original font format, but not very easy to work with when using foreign languages - because it does not support Unicode text encoding.
Use newer programs and OpenType instead.
