ReType Foundry proudly introduces Laski Slab, a comprehensive suite of 20 fonts conceived for editorial purposes. The type family was designed by Paula Mastrangelo, an Art Director with extensive experience in editorial design specialized in corporate communication. Originally developed for an online children’s magazine, Laski was expanded into a multipurpose type family with the technical assistance of Ramiro Espinoza.

Our award-winning 'Tomate' is one of our best sellers and we have always felt it deserved to be expanded into a real type family.

In its 2 years of existence 'Tomate' has been the typeface of choice in a large variety of packaging designs, where its friendly and joyful character plays an important role in making products attractive and sellable.

Today we are introducing the 'Tomate family'; 4 weights ranging from Light to Black, with improved contours and expanded kerning, plus and alternative 'g'.

Last but not least, the price of individual weights has been lowered from $55 to $45. Enjoy!

The Tomate type family can be purchased at www.re-type.com

We proudly announce a new release in our award winning typeface family. 'Lavigne Text' is a 4 weights package optimized for ease of reading at small sizes. It features generous x-height, short ascenders and descenders, open counters and simplified details that improve its reproduction at small sizes.

'Lavigne Text' has also a solid presence on paper and its weight make it ideal for the setting of fine books and magazines. Used in conjunction with 'Lavigne Display', they make a perfect team, bringing aesthetic consistency at every typographic hierarchy.
The philosophy behind the 'Lavigne type family' is to achieve the refinements observed in classic 'modern serif' typefaces, without borrowing too much from history.

Kade is a display/semi display sans family of fonts based on vernacular lettering photographed over the last ten years in and around the harbours of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Hence the name Kade that translates into English as ‘quay’, also the name of its designer.

Kade grew slowly from many different ideas and elements. The letters reflects the industrial method in which they are cut for the side of ships from large steel plates. Frequently subtleties of curves are compromised due to the cutting tools and the fact engineers are in control. Kade’s italics have an experimental character and were produced in an unorthodox manner by rotating 8 degrees, rather than slanting the roman characters, a method sometimes employed in shipyards.
