Typographer’s Glossary

Typeface: FF Clifford

Here’s a glossary of common type terminology, which along with the FAQs may answer many font related questions. If the information you need isn’t here, call us.

Family
A collection of related typefaces which share common design traits and a common name. A type style means any given variant of this coordinated design and is the equivalent of a font or typeface.

Super families are very extensive with a very large number of weights and widths. Type systems are collections of related type families that cross type classifications.

See Styles, Weights, Widths - It's All in the (Type) Family on The FontFeed.
