Created by Alisa Nowak, Jérémie Hornus and Julie Soudanne, Zesta is a screen serif font family. This typeface has 10 styles and was released by Indian Type Foundry.

Zesta is a household of high-contrast serif fonts, meant for usage in display typography. Their design is contemporary, or 'Didone' in style, meaning that its letterforms appear like those used in France throughout the revolutionary, royal, and remediation eras (late-1700s/ early-1800s). This style of type is instantly associated with fashion and style for high-end cosmetic products. It is also used extensively in magazine design. The family includes 10 styles. There are 5 weights, ranging Light through Black. Each weight has an upright and italic font available. The upright font styles include letterforms drawn with vertical axes of stress. Ball terminals play a popular design function in both the upright and italic fonts. The hairlines in all of the fonts are very thin. The thicker strokes just keep getting much heavier as one moves up the weight scale, and this is the driver behind the typeface's high-contrast design. The lowercase letters in Zesta feature a big x-height. Ascenders increase a little above the capitals, and the default numerals are the exact same height as the uppercase letters. These default characters are proportionally-spaced lining figures; nevertheless, oldstyle figures are also available via an OpenType function. The fonts include discretionary 'ct' and 'st' ligatures, which can be accessed through an OpenType function also. The lowercase 'a' and 'g' are double-storey in the upright fonts and single-storey in the italics.
