Publisher: TypeTogether
Ebony was developed by Veronika Burian, José Scaglione and published by TypeTogether. Ebony contains 18 designs and household plan options. p > Some typefaces need time to ripen; Burian and Scaglione made the very first sketches for Ebony back in 2008, but it took a couple of years of developing in a drawer to be turned into a multi-functional type family. While keeping in tune with TypeTogether's focus on intricate typographic structures needed for magazine, newspapers and books -whether printed or digital-, Ebony goes far beyond editorial use and guarantees excellent performance in branding and advertising.

The series of dark weights with tight and powerful curves can increase any heading, while the lighter designs create a friendly and tidy feel in blocks of continuous text. Ebony does not fall brief on aiding legibility either; letterforms have an unique instructions of ductus and functions like the leading serif on 'l' aid making them plainly appreciable from each other.

It is a type family that cleverly seeks a balance in between the openness and legibility of humanist sans serifs and the striking and more regularised character of grotesques. The letter-shapes function generous counters and open terminals with crisp angles, and daringly grow both in colour and width as the font styles get bolder. Infused with this strength, Ebony likewise shows a quirky side in a few of her shapes; the vertical fractions, the at-symbol, the old-style numbers, ...

The mainly slanted style of the italics is separated in some letterforms, such as 'a e f l', that are more in line with a traditional cursive appearance. This, together with a forceful italic angle, guarantee a change in texture within a block of text, regardless of sharing the exact same letter weight and width with the uprights.

With 18 designs, tending towards the much heavier part of the weight-spectrum, this face has a powerful quality!
