Compiler – Design Information
Legible, technical, clear—with a hint of retro: Compiler is a no-frills font family straight from the heart of a microprocessor.
Inspired by console typefaces, the humanist sans serif typeface combines a large x-height with striking serifs on certain letters such as i and l. Those serifs evoke the aesthetics of monospace typefaces for programming. Even though Compiler is a proportional typeface, this detail improves glyph recognition and helps differentiate between individual letters. Combined with vertical stroke ends, which allow for particularly even spacing, the serifs make for an extremely legible typeface. (Even in small sizes.)
Brand recognition guaranteed: Compiler is ideal for applications that require a mechanical flavor without appearing offish. You can use it for websites, apps, branding, corporate design, annual reports, signage, and many other areas with perfect results.
Compiler includes an additional subfamily, Compiler Plain. In Compiler Plain, the signature letters lose their serifs and the forms of “a” and “g” are simplified. This way, the shapes are neutralized. The technical impression recedes into the background. Both families can be combined smoothly: you might use the standard Compiler fonts for display sizes and Compiler Plain styles for body copy. For total design control, you can toggle each of the defining design elements individually from Compiler to Compiler Plain and vice versa. Just use Stylistic Sets to fine-tune your Compiler fonts.
Compiler provides you with 8 weights in 4 variations: Upright, Italics, Plain Upright and Plain Italics. That’s a total of 32 fonts. Each style contains more than 900 glyphs, including advanced typographic tools such as proportional and tabular figures (both lining and old-style) or small caps—something you’ll rarely find in this genre. Other glyphs are optimized for display sizes, such as circled figures and various arrows. There’s also a set of glyphs designed for web use: with symbols for shopping carts, hamburger menus or checkboxes, you can implement your web projects elegantly and consistently without relying on third-party tools (like an external icon font).
