PF Centro Slab

European Design Awards 2008Cyrillic Type Competition 2009

Awards

One important drawback of the slab type genre is the decreased legibility which becomes intense at heavier weights. Centro Slab though sets itself apart by handling the serifs in a more intuitive way. This results in a typeface with a 'semi-slab' impression and increased clarity. The roman letterforms, whilst discreet at small sizes, maintain a clean, sturdy and unique personality which motivates the reader. The italic is clearly distinguished from the roman, it has much softer serifs, is less wide, it is charming and exciting, a bit lighter and constructed with an Aldine touch. Every font in this series has been enhanced with 270 symbols for packaging, public areas, environment, transportation, computers, fabric care and urban life. Centro Slab is part of a larger type system that includes a serif and a sans version which share similar optical attributes. It has become very popular among printed media and is ideal choice for newspapers, magazines and corporate applications. It received a Gold Award from the European Design Awards and an Excellence Award from the Cyrillic Type Design Competition.
