TT Smalls is a geometrical sans serif created to be used in video clips and for video manufacturing by the TypeType foundry typography minds. The essential function of the font household is the massive distinction between the uppercase and lowercase characters, wherein we deliberately diminish the x-height. At the identical time, to ensure that indicators to be readable and balanced, the font makes use of pronounced visible compensators and a big letter spacing.
In the typeface, there’s a ornamental set of different characters that covers the uppercase Latin alphabet, uppercase Cyrillic alphabet, and customary figures. As the thickness of the strokes decreases, the variety of layer traces within the design of the letter decreases. For instance, within the Black weight, the design in another ornamental set consists of 4 layers-lines, and in Thin already solely of 1 line. In order to simplify the entry to this particular set, now we have programmed it for the SMCP (small caps) function. You simply want to show it on.
Especially for video manufacturing, now we have ready a set of explicit catchwords which can be included in every font, and whose top corresponds to the x-height of the lowercase signal. For catchwords output, you must sort a particular mixture of characters. For instance, to get the AKA catchword, you must sort one of many following mixtures: a+okay+a, or A+Okay+A, or a_k_a, or A_K_A. Using any of those mixtures will make the catchword seem. It is necessary to notice that for profitable use of catchwords, the function calt (contextual alternates) have to be completely turned on.
The TT Smalls font household consists of 18 fonts: 9 weights and 9 italics. The household has a set of stylistic alternate options, which make the typeface a bit extra humanist when turned on. TT Smalls options 16 ligatures, together with a number of Cyrillic, old-style figures, a set of navigational arrows. In addition, TT Smalls helps a lot of different helpful OpenType options comparable to case, ordn, sups, sinf, dnom, numr, onum, tnum, pnum, calt, frac.
