Variable font

A variable font includes multiple styles of a typeface within a single size-efficient file, along one or more axes (like weight or optical size), affording granular stylistic variation between design extremes. Learn more about our variable fonts.

Symbols

This typeface includes an extensive set of symbols that echo the design details and weight of the other glyphs. Each symbol glyph is properly Unicode-encoded for reliable copy-pasting, webfont fallback behavior, and screen reader accessibility.

Aglet Mono specimen Aglet Sans specimen Aglet Slab specimen

At once technical and human, Aglet Sans explores what it means to be round, and the ways in which a system can be implemented and strategically broken. A lively mix of corner radiuses offsets strict modular structures. Interlocking entrance and exit strokes create spirited counterforms that urge the eye forward. These unorthodox details generate interest when set large, yet provide a crisp but unobtrusive voice for paragraphs and captions, both in print and on screen.

Adapted from its precursor Aglet Slab, the sans has been thoroughly and sensitively redrawn to stand on its own soft feet. Used together, the two faces form a robust, flexible typographic palette of seven matched weights with true italics and an extensive set of symbols. Easily at home in editorial heads and decks, the Aglet superfamily will also add buoyant personality to corporate branding systems, interfaces, and environmental graphics.
