Snare Variable Font
A typeface that celebrates marching to the beat of your own drum.
Snare is a jazzy little display type that presents like a stencil but behaves in its own way. Featuring angled section breaks and variable heights, Snare keeps each character’s footprint steady as as its heights change, revealing unique crossbars, periscoping capitals and deep-sinking descenders. Because each character follows its own rules, the more each word grows, the more it shows the beautiful rhythm of variety. Or stretch individual characters to shape the contours of your words.
Beyond just being playful, fun to dress in colors, and delightfully useful for tight spaces, Snare’s lanky verticals and nervous energy reflect the time it was created. In this second pandemic spring, Snare brings up the drumroll-expectant heartbeat of our uncertainty, and the wish that when we can all meet again, our newfound weirdnesses will find a home in the world.
The Snare font family includes one uppercase alphabet with two lowercase variants and comes in ten standard weights-which-are-just-really-heights (.otf) and as a variable type (.ttf) for designers using compatible platforms.
Snare was designed by Alexander Wright and In-House International and developed by Rodrigo Fuenzalida at FragType.
