Gentleman

Gentleman is a sans serif font family. This typeface has ten styles and was published by Juraj Chrastina.

It all started with my affection for geometric typefaces.
I have always liked their unevenness.
Unlike modern proportions types with quite a plain appearance, geometric typefaces tend to keep some dynamism and depth.
The decision was taken that my new face should be based on the elementary forms of geometry.
But some questions remained.
The legibility and the friendliness of such designs.
The generous x-height of Gentleman, constant throughout the family, increased the legibility and allowed a low-contrast construction even for thicker weights.

While the sans-serif simplicity looks cool and modern, several subtle decorative distractions are able to enrich the design by personality and by a warm and organic feeling. Indeed, Gentleman got a few distinctive elements. The uppercase G has no bar. The letters a, d, l and p obtained outstroke terminals. A double-story a left more space to the creativity.

And at the end of the endless refinements and revisions, here we are with the Gentleman family, trying to become eye-pleasing in spite of its geometric simplicity.

Gentleman comes in 10 weights from hairline to black.
The fonts are equipped with carefully fine-tuned kerning tables.
