Introducing Publico
Commercial Type is pleased to announce the release of our new and improved Publico Collection, a new serif typeface family in two optical sizes, designed for publications.

The Publico Collection originated as one of many stops on the long road to the 2005 redesign of The Guardian and the Guardian family, and was later finished for Mark Porter and Simon Esterson’s redesign of Público in Lisbon. Because the underlying skeletons have so much in common, the Publico family is an ideal companion for any part of the Guardian Collection. Featuring narrow proportions, a square and sturdy skeleton, and a pleasant openness, Publico Headline has a clean and contemporary look with an understated elegance.

The narrow proportion of Publico Text makes for a very efficient text face. The elegance of the headline faces is replaced by sturdiness in the serifs and less pronounced ball terminals, giving an even, comfortable texture in body copy.
