Zaft is a weighty titling boldface, full of eccentricity and character. The face is distinctly heavy-handed in construction, built to a strict grid with emphasis on geometric perfection. Its strict systematic construction is arguably Modernist in approach, yet its fundamental architecture acknowledges the cultural relics of the Industrial Revolution; heavy slab-serifs and reverse-contrast.
Apart from its ridged design, there is a playful rhythm and harmony to the negative space, allowing for delicate pockets of air to exist between the compact forms. This is further accentuated by Zaft's hairline letter-spacing which helps focus the eye on deviations within the glyph architecture without distraction.
A unique feature worth noting is Zaft's use of contextual ligatures which form rounded connections between mirroring vertices. These gentle bridges are easy on the eye and add a vital elegance to its otherwise austere build. The face is equipped with a broad set of punctuation and an extended range of pan-European Latin characters. Please check the 'PDF Specimen' below for a comprehensive overview of Zaft's glyph set.
