Matic is a multi-script type family that finds its inspiration in the typography of vintage wrist watches. The family is made up of two styles: Matic A uses wide, boxy letterforms with a low contrast and tall x-height. Matic B tones down both the width and the boxiness of its sans-serif partner, but only marginally. Both styles include a set of upright optical weights for extra small settings as well as accompanying italics. A version of Matic A appears in Gerard Unger’s book Theory of type design.
