What is the Halsted font?
Halsted is a layered typeface family inspired by both the original Art Deco movement and the later revival of the 1970s. Though it’s built upon the classic combination of high-contrast thick to thin strokes, Halsted is a more decorative, contemporary, and geometric interpretation of the style.
The Halsted family contains 3 main shading styles (Halsted Plain, Halsted Ben Day, Halsted Hatch) and one fill/background layer (Halsted Solid). All weights can be effective used on their own, but when you layer one of the shading weights on top of the solid weight you can get a distinct and vibrant effect.
Halsted contains all of the features you’d expect from a polished, contemporary typeface family. Numerous OpenType stylistic alternates are available for certain letters. Halsted also includes a vast collection of symbols and accent characters that help increase its functionality and provide thorough language support.
