About Pathos

Pathos is a robust slab serif typeface that follows a simple design idea - to make serifs as large as possible. Because there are obvious limits to how much serifs can grow, for instance the space available between and inside letters, Pathos’ huge serifs test the physical limits to their size.

This results in peculiar letter-forms since their structure has to accommodate thick and uncompromisingly rectangular serifs and terminals. While some letters have a stable appearance, others have to adopt more dynamic postures, leaning to the right or to the left, in order to make room for serifs.

Because of that, Pathos’ letters not only have a distinct personality but attain a surprising clarity and legibility. Pathos works well in text settings, but also makes for eye-catching headlines.
