FIT is a hyper-stylized series of caps designed with one thing in mind: filling up space with maximum impact.
To accomplish this task, I drew Fit with an expansive range of widths, represented by the ten styles shown here. Beginning with the impossibly narrow Skyline style, each character grows by 3600% (on average) to reach the gargantuan Ultra Extended. In between these ridiculous extremes, you will find a family rich in panache and expressive potential.
Fit is anchored by its white shapes: regardless of width, the space within the letters and the space between the letters always remains the same. These white shapes cut dramatically through the letterforms, fusing them into a mesmerizing network of black and white.
When you license Fit, you’ll get:
A family of 10 widths, from Skyline to Ultra Extended, for general typesetting and design purposes.
1001 numbered styles for precision fitting, plus DrawBot and web-based tools to help you find the perfect fit.
For a limited time, order Fit along with any DJR typeface family worth at least $150, and you’ll get $50 off your purchase. With a Mini license, that means Fit is free!

Here’s a Fit PDF specimen for you to save and enjoy. In addition to showings and character sets, it has a full listing of Fit’s OpenType features and supported languages not shown on this page. Print wisely; I am not responsible for replacing ink cartridges that are emptied by printing Fit!
Many thanks to Chris Lewis, for helping Fit come to life on this webpage; Maria Doreuli, for consulting with me on Fit’s Cyrillic; Donny Truong, for consulting with me on the Vietnamese accents; Marina Chaccur, for helping me navigate the design of the diacritics; Grzegorz Rolek, for his ogonexcellent advice on Fit’s Polish accents; Jill Pichotta, for looking over every last detail; Alexandre Saumier Demers and Myles Maxfield, for their technical advice; Indra Kupferschmid and Nick Sherman, for encouraging me to take risks with this release; Rachel Elnar and Michael Doret, for inspiring me to draw something in this style in the first place; and finally, a big thank you to all the folks out there that are working to make variable fonts a reality!
The Fine Print
Fit is not recommended for setting any copy that you actually want people to read. Please use it responsibly! The Fit variable font attempts to comply with the OpenType 1.8.1 Specification and includes a STAT table. Although widespread support for variable fonts is still forthcoming, this has been an exciting opportunity to play with this technology early in the game, and I hope that Fit will serve as a useful illustration of its possibilities. You can expect that I’ll keep improving the variable font as the technology progresses, and you can rest assured that the basic font family and 1001 instances will do great work for you in the mean time. Oh, and by the way, Fit can also survive mechanical stretching and slanting pretty dang well, so squoosh away!
