Basic Font Information
=================

Neuton is a clean, dark, somewhat Dutch-inspired serif font which reminds you a little of Times. It has a large height, short extenders, and a compact width for better screen use, and economy of space.

The family will comprise a regular, italic, and cursive, each in five weights and with smallcaps. Two italics — one called "italic", and the other "cursive" — are uncommon, but very useful. Ever tried emphasizing something already emphasized? Beyond that obvious example, there are other uses.

Sometimes a text needs a different flavor or feel. While one roman can work for a variety of texts, the companion italics don't always. In more classical or personal documents, a stiff, sober, modern and down-to-earth italic will never work. And in many essays, some of the fancier italics look ridiculous. Who said a roman needs only one companion?

Neuton is in continuing development and will come to have:
* 5 weights, from Extralight to Extrabold
* Italic and Smallcaps versions
* A cursive variant
* Extended width versions

A wonderful typeface, coming in a variety of weights and styles, even with an additional cursive font, taking its italic relative to the next step.

Bit late to comment but I use Neuton as Go-To-Font on my Kindle (my old one and my new Paperweight as well). Took initially a bit of time to get it to work but it is really worth it. The font works so great on an E-Reader, much better then the pre-installed fonts.

Congratulations on the DD man! I'm glad to see some of the words and phrases in the presentation worked well for people. Especially 'Päivänsini' seems to catch attention, which is Finnish for 'morning glory' . Actually 'Neuton' reminded me of 'neutron' which explains the quarks and science references.

brianskywalker Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep! I had looked up the meaning of 'Päivänsini'.

> 'Neuton' reminded me of 'neutron' which explains the quarks and science references.

I thought so. I think Isaac Newton references would also be appropriate.

Thank you, thank you! :)

Definitely loving this. I'm always collecting serif fonts, because sometimes you just need something a little different from all the other roman-like fonts.

How is the font licensed? Free? Donation? For sale?
I like the classy blend of simplification, curvature, and angles--a healthy modern serif.

Under the SIL Open Font License. :) I do appreciate donations, though. Either on dA, or through the dafont page: [link]

:) Thanks! The play between angles and curves was one of the things I worked a long time on this. It seems to make Neuton look very friendly, while having a subtle attitude.

Amazing work on the typology here. It's actually very simple yet it looks so elegant and eye catchy. This can be used as a benchmark for professional posters that emphasizes more on text layout rather than graphical symbolism.

brianskywalker Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
PT is an excellent font. But it's very different from Neuton. The individual flavors and vibes distinct. So what to use depends on what exact feel is better for the text or project. :)
