FontMesa is pleased to introduce our latest sans serif type font design Marlin Sans, clean simple and perfect.
Marlin Sans is your classic everyday use sans serif that’s packed with alternate letters that I’m sure you’re going to enjoy.
Marlin Sans comes with two sets of italics, the standard 12° italic and a 6° slant version that’s perfect for headlines and signage where you may want the look of an italic with half the slant.
Marlin Sans offers two versions, the regular which has round dots, periods and accents and the SQ version which includes square dots, periods and accents.
Both versions include the same set of stylistic alternates which you will need an opentype aware application such as Adobe Illustrator to access the alternate glyphs in Marlin Sans.
Within Marlin Sans is one alternate letter that I’m pretty fond of, you’ll notice it right away as a slightly rotated G, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect project to use it on.
You’ll also find alternates in Marlin Sans that allow you to go without descenders on the g, j, q, y.
Right about now you’re probably wondering what the sets of three lines are for in Marlin Sans?
They’re wings, hard or rounded, simply type out a name or word then place a wing on each side or use the center wing with each side wing and layer a word over the top.
You’ll also find a Unicase E in Marlin Sans, when creating the uppercase Schwa glyph I thought, well why not flip it over and add it as a Unicase letter?
What about the numbers in Marlin Sans? Does it have oldstyle and tabular figures? don’t worry about it we’ve got you covered.
In saltwater fishing the Marlin fish is considered the King of the ocean and a royal symbol in some cultures.
So put on your flip flops then explore and discover the depths of the all new Marlin font family.
