A text typeface currently in development. Marteau was originally designed as part of the Cooper Union Condensed Typeface Program in July 2012. Along with 28 other students in the program, we each created a typeface in an intensive 5-week crash course in typeface design.

Marteau is a sturdy and modern serif for use in both display and text settings. The basic character set is almost finished; the remaining glyphs and italics are in development.

Below is a specimen of the work-in-progress.
