Although originally conceived as a magazine face – with strong serifs and open character shapes for good legibility in small sizes, and compact letter forms optimized for narrow columns and tight headlines – Marat evolved into a comprehensive family for general use.
This specific construction and the round forms of the letters create an elegant, soft and friendly appearance. The typeface suits a wide range of typography, e.g. editorial, brochures, packaging and corporate design. In particular in bold weights it works surprisingly well, which is not always the case with serif faces.
Marat Pro includes oldstyle and lining figures (both proportional and tabular), a wide range of language support and various OpenType features (e.g. ligatures, case sensitive forms, fractions, superiors and inferiors). Upright fonts (except for Marat fat) include Small Caps accessible by OpenType feature.
