Slate was designed by Rod McDonald and released by Monotype. Slate consists of 48 styles and household package options. The font style is currently # 39 in Best Sellers. p > A typeface of grace, power and extraordinary adaptability, the Slate collection is a truly gorgeous style that accomplishes stellar levels of readability, both in print and on screen.

Created by the award winning type designer Rod McDonald, this six-weight sans serif household is an uncommon example of superb looks fulfilling world-class functionality. The typeface's readable letterforms embody an amalgam of the finest traits of both humanistic and monstrous letterforms.

" I didn't desire a face with an 'engineered' appearance, or with any obvious design tricks or gadgets," admits designer McDonald. "I desired a pure design. I admit that I was callous with any character that wished to stand apart from the rest."

The Slate collection is readily available in six weights with complementary italics, with slight changes in structure from the light to the black weights. Its lightweight is reminiscent of early American sans.

Whether for use in display work or in longer-form settings, few typefaces possess the appeal and power of this style, leaving the Slate family an excellent addition to any designer's typographic quiver.
