Beautiful & Geometric Font
You may have guessed it already — GeoCon is a geometric, condensed font. It is made specifically for sleek titles on the web, and being a light weight, it’s best at 16pt and larger. But boy, once you see these letters up close and personal, you’ll fall in love with their elegant curvature.
@font-face & Web Typography
@font-face is quickly becoming the standard format to bring non "web-safe" fonts to the web browser. @font-face opens a whole new world in the realm of web typography - greatly enhancing the web browsing experience for everyone. In the interest of pushing the web forward, we are including @font-face licensing so you can use GeoCon on your website, both in non-commercial and commercial ventures.
Behind the Font
We wanted to develop a sexy, modern font crafted specifically for web usage. The majority of the condensed glyphs are designed at a strict 1:2 ratio giving them a very sturdy and solid geometric feel. Notable exceptions to this ratio are the "half" letters f, j, r, and t coming in at a 0.5:2 ratio and wider letters, M, and W, at 1.5:2.
We want to be transparent with the intended application of our fonts. We believe that fonts should be designed for specific usages at predetermined sizes rather than forced to be used in ways (and at sizes) that it was not intended. This is why we are very open in sharing that GeoCon Light is intended to be used for titles and headers with a minimum recommended size of 16pt. When used at or above that threshold, you will be able to utilize the font to it's full intended potential and have it display with maximum effectiveness.
Lines, angles and curves are based on precise mathematical measurements. The result is a clean font that is very readable at moderate sizes, and literally shows off at larger sizes. We very pleased to finally to release it to the community.
A whole lot of work goes into the designing of a font. From initial concepts, drafts, and planning to vectorizing, perfecting and tweaking; there's quite a time investment. With that said, our goals have always been to move the web forward. In that interest, we are releasing GeoCon at an extremely affordable price. In many cases, when you purchase a font license, it doesn't necessarily mean that you have the right to use it as a web font. Often, this licensing costs extra. We understand that this is a discouragement to web developers.
We want to help the community by providing cost-effective fonts that are high quality but won't break the bank. For this reason, GeoCon is @font-face ready at no extra charge. We realize that this means you very well could repeatedly use this font on multiple client websites without paying for additional licenses. That is obviously not something we are able to police, but our hopes are that you recognize the effort we are putting forth to make this available to you at a very low cost. Rather than bump the price up to current market values to make an extra buck for ourselves, we ask that you spread the word about GeoCon and help others contribute to a more beautiful web.
