dezcom's picture

Dezcom Typefaces is happy to announce the release of its first commercial typeface and plans several more releases in the near future.

Dez Squeeze Fat is a full-figured display face. It is generous enough in weight and width to make you a knockout! Heads will turn from ho-hum to hard-hitting with this face. Don’t apologize for your size—the ample look will speak volumes to your audience.

When you don't want to speak softly, Squeeze can shout above the crowd. Say it loudly and proudly, this face does not have a weight problem.
The Dez Squeeze Family was developed as a clean OpenType display face with a super-bold weight
Dez Squeeze has 483 glyphs with uppercase, lowercase, proportional lining figures, unicase, stylistic sets, alternates, ordinals, and case specific punctuation. It has a full range of diacritics and covers all European languages using the Latin script.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

WHAT IS THIS TYPEFACE?

Hello, Franz,
The text you quoted is just placeholder text that I should have already replaced :-)
Placeholder text is used just as a "temporary" filler in a Lorum ipsum sort of way. Now that my site is live, I will have to finish writing everything and replace it.

I assume the typeface you are talking about is "Dez Squeeze". It is a very heavy weight and wide display face with quite narrow counters. It is intended for use in large size display situations where you want high impact and a very dark color. For now, only the widest width has been released but there will be 4 narrower widths to follow shortly.

Thank you for your interest,

ChrisL

PS: Here is a sample of the 2 extreme widths:

c'mon! you can suck it in even farther :^p

dezcom's picture

I guess that might be Dez Squeeze Corsett :-)
but I wouldn't want it to be anorexic.

hi Chris, your font in use:

Its about a new company (a merger of the italian company Menabue and the german company Betz) for exclusive car transports in Modena, Italy. Not yet online.

Finally! Four years later, I have released the whole family with numerous added glyphs to the 7 widths.
http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/dezcom/dez-squeeze-pro/

Dez Squeeze Pro is a display family in seven bold widths. Choose the width that fits the space available for your headline. Dez Squeeze Pro is a very bold display face with multiple language support, nearly 600 glyphs, stylistic sets, Unicase, and many alternates. Dez Squeeze Pro is Bold enough for knock-out photographs, so go ahead, knock yourself out.
