Ambit is an eccentric and unique sans serif font inspired by early grotesques, but adapted for the 21st century. Its most striking details are the curly “f” and “r” (don’t worry, there are simple alternate versions available via Stylistic Set 02). Shapes like “c”, “C”, “s” and “S” seem to curl in onto themselves, giving this type family a very distinctive look. Also noteworthy are the “R” and “K”, which feature curly legs.
Ambit features 7 weights (from Thin to Black), each with oblique italics. Featuring a Latin Extended character set, Ambit covers most languages written with the Latin script.
OpenType features include ligatures and a full range of lining and old-style numerals, each with tabular versions. Each weight also comes with case-sensitive punctuation and three stylistic sets giving access to alternate letter shapes. The first set includes single-storey “a”, ”g” and an alternate “y”; the second set gives access to less curly versions of “f” and “r”, which might be more appropriate for setting text at small sizes; the third set features an alternate “Q” design.
With its distinctive look, Ambit is perfect for branding, packaging, and editorial projects, both printed and online.
