Bourgeois Slab is built upon the framework of Bourgeois, our popular geometric type family. As with the sans-serif Bourgeois, Slab’s letter forms are thoroughly contemporary in look and feel. Echoing mid-century modernism in style, Slab’s overall look is friendly and businesslike, more expansive and expressive than Bourgeois’s pared-down asceticism.
The slab-serif’s development and vigorous uptake during the early-Victorian-era Industrial Revolution, means that we endow slab-serif faces with characteristics of sturdiness, durability and trustworthiness. At the same time, we appreciate the slab-serif’s raison d’etre: They’re made to grab your attention.
Bourgeois Slab and Slab Condensed when combined, offer 24 styles suited for text of all kinds and sizes. Both are particularly good for for text-heavy projects and for designers seeking a robust, authoritative-but-genial voice for branding and logo work
