Darby Serif is a contemporary serif of two families: Darby Serif Display, for headlines and large sizes; and Darby Serif Text, designed for continuous reading matter. Based on the same skeleton as Darby Sans, it is suited to news in digital and print, editorial design, graphic design and corporate design. With its mixture of roundness and sharpness, Darby Serif a face with both rich historical roots and utilitarian functionality. Much of its gentle beauty comes from the influence of the lettering and typefaces from Britain made in the Age of Enlightenment in the eighteenth century and its particularly localized variant. However, its proportions follow the functional newsfaces of the twentieth century, giving it economy in headline and text without sacrificing legibility, even under adverse conditions.
