The Chaparral™ typeface is a hybrid, combining the sturdiness of geometric slab serif designs with sixteenth century Roman lettershapes and proportions. The result shares overtones with old style typefaces – but with less contrast in stroke weights. Calligraphic suggestions in several letters also add to the design’s personality.

Chapparal

The Chaparral family is available in four weights, each with a spirited italic counterpart, in regular and caption designs – the latter intended for use at small text sizes. The design is clear and readable at text settings while remaining subtle and lively at display sizes.
