Background

OurType Meret is a typeface family for newspapers and a good deal more.
It is the work of Nils Thomsen, a young type designer, whose undogmatic attitude to design and straight-on working methods are powered by research, perseverance, and the latest font development technologies. Meret is the fruit of this approach, formed during Nils’s time on the Type]Media course at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

The design of Meret carefully balances pointed-nib and broad-nib stroke contrast. It is styled to contemporary typographic requirements and fine-tuned throughout its range of weights. These perform faultlessly in text, while the Thin and Black weights are great for headlines. Meret’s italics, mild
in manner, are the perfect foil for its vivid romans. And the serifless figures stand out beautifully – among them are lining, old style, and small cap designs, and an intermediate variant whose height is well suited to newspaper texts of all kinds. Meret’s uppercase height, slightly reduced, is similarly optimized for typesetting in languages that are capitals-intensive, such as German.
