Meran Design Information

TYPE BY Meran family is designer by Maurice Göldner. The family was commercially released in 2008. A contemporary, eye-catching family, Meran’s design grew out of an exercise to construct capital letters from strips of black paper. The letters were later translated into digital form and given matching roman and italic lowercase designs together with figures.

Meran is not easy to characterize. A sanserif? Undoubtedly, but much more too: with its fresh and distinctive look we might call it a ‘contemporary rotunda’. A display type that works well as text, or a text face that performs impressively in display? It’s both! Meran is a sanserif with an edge, which offers an exceptional blend between character and utility.

The Meran family consists of roman and italic designs in six weights: Thin, Light, Normal, SemiBold, Bold and Black. Its character set includes small caps; lining, old style and small cap figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; comprehensive superiors, inferiors, nominators and denominators; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols; arrows; standard and discretionary ligatures; and a complete range of accents covering all (Latin script based) Western, Central and East European languages.

To offer additional choice and flexibility, the Meran family is built around three widths: Normal, SemiCondensed and Condensed. The SemiCondensed Width has been specially developed for font sizes above 14 point.

Meran fonts are available in OTF CFF, TTF, WOFF, and WOFF2.
