Gist from Yellow Design Studio is an inline slab serif with a retro yet modern vibe. It’s a collision between monoline slab and indie script. With 627 glyphs per weight, it’s highly customizable…either keep it simple with the base character set or use ligatures, alternates and swashes for extra flair. All-caps typesettings have an especially retro edge. Also included are line layers for adding color to the inline areas.

Gist has both Upright and Regular (italic) versions. It includes a complete set of funky contextual alternate caps plus some schmancy lowercase variations. Most caps have additional swash versions as well. A bunch of other capital and lowercase alternates are thrown in for an especially pleasurable typesetting experience.

Gist Tips:

  • In Photoshop try different 'anti-aliasing' settings for best results.
  • In Illustrator if the line layers don't align with the normal layers, change the "First Baseline" setting in the Area Type Options to "Leading".
  • Works best with opentype savvy application, especially those with a glyphs palette like InDesign, Illustrator and Quark. All glyphs can also be accessed in any layout software by using the application "PopChar" by Ergonis.
