Named after the German Renaissance astronomer, Kepler is a contemporary type family designed by Robert Slimbach in the tradition of classic modern 18th century typefaces. Modern typefaces are known for their cool intellectual quality, but Slimbach's Kepler multiple master captures the modern style in a humanistic manner. It is elegant and refined with a hint of Oldstyle proportion and calligraphic detailing that lends it warmth and energy.

Created by Adobe type designer Robert Slimbach in the tradition of classic modern 18th-century typefaces, the Kepler™ font family includes four optical size variations that have been optimized for use at specific point sizes. Intended sizes vary by family, but the general size ranges include Caption (6-8 pt), Regular (9-13 pt), Subhead (14-14) and Display (25-72pt).

Although modern typefaces are generally known for their intellectually-based qualities, the Kepler font's modernism is conveyed in a more humanistic manner. On first glance, It's as elegant and refined as many of the most popular 18th century typefaces so popular with printers and typesetters. It's warmth and energy are delivered with a hint of old style proportion and calligraphic detailing. But the concept behind the Kepler font is firmly rooted in the modern technology around us today.
