Gemma: Weights & Widths
Maybe you like feel like being a bit dainty and quiet with a delicate thin, or maybe you’d like to be more out there with a big fat bold… Gemma’s five weights give you a variety of options. Clever designers will find that these all work well together for everything from serious, complicated hierarchies to fun, unpretentious layouts.
The three widths offer extra stylistic and latitudinal flexibility. As the widths change horizontally the x-height also adjusts vertically. The condensed weights are narrow with a larger x-height and the extended weights have a much lower x-height.
The capitals, lining numbers, and many symbols all share equal heights across the fifteen weights and widths (as do the ascender and descenders).
