Soho™ is the latest addition to the growing range of typefaces from
Sebastian Lester. This ‘grand opus’ of a project resulted in a typeface that
comprises 9 weights and 5 widths of precision engineered OpenType. 40
fonts, 32,668 characters and 24 OpenType features.
Hot on the heels of the popular Neo Sans™ and Neo Tech™ range, and
his first typeface release Scene™, Soho represents three years of work by
Lester. “As a type designer I’m preoccupied with finding ways in which I
can address modern problems like good legibility in modern media, and
create fonts that work precisely and efficiently in the most technically
demanding of corporate and publishing environments.”
Slab serif typefaces are enjoying something of a renaissance, offering
versatility whether for corporate identity, product branding, text or display
use. With 40 weights to choose from Soho gives designers endless possibilities
from the ultra chic lines conveyed by the lighter weights to the rock solid
statement made by the heavier weights.
Available in OpenType and OpenType Pro formats Soho is cross-platform
compatible. The Pro version provides extended language support for
Central European languages. Used in conjunction with
software applications that support OpenType many useful features like
‘stylistic sets’ can be leveraged - in which a wide variety of alternative
characters can be introduced at the click of a mouse button giving one
font several ‘tones of voice’ from conservative to cutting edge.
The wide range of glyphs includes ligatures and small caps.
