Background

OurType Stan is a reinterpretation of a now almost forgotten slab serif named ‘Wellington’, issued in 1913 by Bruder Butter, a Dresden typefoundry specialising in display type, or ‘Schrift fur Werbung’. Wellington was designated a ‘Balken-antiqua’, a slab serif that aimed for elegance and readability in text without sacrificing visual power. The revival of Wellington as OurType Stan is designed by Maurice Goldner, whose first commercial font family is OurType Meran.

The Stan family consists of roman and italic designs in seven weights: Thin, Light, Blond, Normal, SemiBold, Bold, and Black. Its PRO character set includes small caps; lining, old style, and small cap height sets of figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; comprehensive superiors, inferiors, nominators and denominators; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols; arrows; standard and discretionary ligatures; alternate stylistic sets, and a complete range of accents covering all (Latin script based) Western, Central and East European languages. Additionally, Stan features a variant with longer ascenders and descenders ??” Stan Plus – specially designed for text allowing generous vertical spacing.

OurType Stan is part of today’s ‘third wave’ of slab serifs. Its design brings out the best of both worlds: the subtle perfume of the past and the ‘esprit’ of the present. Unpretentious and straightforward, Stan is a smart and effective choice for a very wide range of applications.
