New font release. The name for the typeface is missing. Help me with your vote!

After several years of work a new font family is born.
It combines the traditional forms of an old type face with the innovative character of a sans serif font.

Only the name is missing. Which proposal fits? Help me with your vote and remarks!

I like the typeface. (Especially the lightest weight.)

Just a note about your 'Name Wanted' feedback form/poll. It doesn't seem to work like it should, I get several errors/warnings, when submitting the form.

– “Innovatica Old Face” ?

"Kill My Landlord"

Would be my vote.

Either that or:

"Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill!"

That's my proposal for the name:
Longetipo

Why? dunno. Dropped in my mind when I first saw it.

Salmiak (ammonium chloride)

(The typeface is not well rendered in the image.)

Vote? How Swiss.

I think you should have an "f" in there – it's a pretty cool glyph.

Minaret

or perhaps

Banned Minaret

would be my vote.

Yes, the democratic method, which is so popular in Switzerland.

Incontro, Sintesix, Dualitax and Xibrida are making the run. Let's see who's winning.

Whatever you call it don't start with 'FS' and then the name or you'll be confused with FontSmith, and I don't think Jason Smith would be too happy either.

What about "Sintesix" as name for the typeface?
Does the proposal fit? Help me with your vote.

Sintesix sounds like the synthesizer playing brother of Troubadix.

Dear typophiles

Thanks for all your suggestions. An the name of the baby is:

Sintesi. Sans meets serif.

You would like to express tradition by using a contemporary font? Sintesi might be exactly what you are looking for.

Sintesi stands for synthesis – the unification of serif and sans-serif into a contemporary font, which surprises with different facets depending on its application.

In copy size Sintesi performs like a sans-serif. It is a compact and well readable font that fulfils all requirements of modern digital media.

In larger sizes, Sintesi unfolds its traditional character. Now, its strong contrast and the perceptible feather-ductus stand out clearly, as we appreciate it in a historical old style face.

Sintesi is completed by a suitable italic. Its cursive character has more to do with writing-speed than to its moderate inclination. Therefore Sintesi may be well-suited for many other purposes, not only for emphasising purposes.

The whole font family consists of 20 styles and offers a wide range of Western and Eastern European special characters, typographical ligatures, uppercase, oldstyle and fraction figures.

Start combining antiquity with modernity!
