TRANSAT: A new Art Deco sans-serif from Typetanic
0

My newest typeface, Transat, is now available on MyFonts and YouWorkForThem. For a limited time, you can get all 5 weights, plus optically corrected obliques, for $30.

Transat is a geometric sans serif typeface, with caps inspired by Art Deco signage — found inside the "Gare Maritime" (literally "sea station") ocean liner terminals in both Le Havre and Cherbourg, France, in the early 1930s. The name “Transat” is the common shortening of “Compagnie Générale Transatlantique,” the company that operated majestic ocean liners like the SS Normandie out of Le Havre from 1862–1974.

Transat includes many OpenType features, such as ligatures (ff/ft/fft), small capitals, case sensitive forms, stylistic alternates, arbitrary fractions, and a full complement of proportional, tabular, and oldstyle figures. Enjoy!

Looking very nice! It has this Art Deco vibe I like, without going over the top. Very well done, I might just snap up this one!
