Addington CF Font Field Guide

Best Practices

Addington CF is built for use at small to medium sizes, in print and digital environments. Its middle weights are designed for use in longform text, articles, books, footnotes, and documents. The thicker weights can double as headlines, subheadlines, and captions, especially when tracked tightly, while thinnest weights shine at very large sizes – great for wordmarks and posters.



Seven weights of roman designs, each with a complementary italic, for a total of 14 styles.
