Foundry Dit and Dat are created with a common horizontal dash grid structure for accurate layering when characters are superimposed. Dat’s integrated background aligns vertically and horizontally, when set solid, forming a continuous pattern. Dit functions as a legible correspondence font, with a ‘typewriter’ feel. Each family contains: light, regular, medium and bold weights, with a series of dashes to extend the grid. Characters can also be offset to make different patterns – in the process becoming images – a graphic language with total integration of form and function.
