Kleine Titel, a custom typeface for the styrian Kleine Zeitung daily newspaper

Kleine Zeitung is the largest regional newspaper in Austria, covering Styria and Carinthia with East Tyrol. The paper has around 800,000 readers.
I had the pleasure to design a new headline typeface for one of the best selling newspaper in Europe.
Kleine Titel has 14 styles in 2 weights (Condensed and Normal) and 7 weights from Thin to Ultra. The characters are compact, have small ascenders and descenders, to help typesetting on small space. To emphasize the headlines in the newspaper the serifs are massive, but not too heavy. The apertures are big, the shapes are open to help the better legibility.
