Type design and development

Home > Fonts > Lobster


The Lobster font took a different approach. The new OpenType format gives us the possibility to have multiple versions of each letter, and that's exactly what we are doing: Instead of compromising the design of our letters to force connections, we do what lettering artist do. We draw many versions of each letter and a lot of different letter-pairs (aka "ligatures") so we always use the best possible variation of each letter depending of the context of the letter inside each word. All this happens automatically in any browser that supports ligatures.

Lobster Thai: Pattaya

Pattaya is a version of Lobster extended into Thai by Cadson Demak, a type foundry in Thailand. It supports Latin and all variations of the Thai script with an informal loopless design. However, vertical metrics (that effect line-spacing) had to be adjusted in order to support Thai vowels and tone marks, so this is published as a separate family.
