Blanco is a serif typeface with 4 weights designed primarily for comfortable, extended reading at smaller text sizes on screen and in print. Its strong, consistent rhythm creates an even value and texture that gives text blocks a calm tone of voice. The unfussy, sturdy details provide a contemporary, understated and thoughtful character. This character allows it to be easily paired with other typefaces, making it a versatile addition (or beginning) to a type library as a utilitarian face. While there are optical corrections in the forms to make Blanco work effectively at smaller sizes, these corrections remain unobtrusive at larger sizes, revealing a warmth and consideration to the details of the design.
