Ruberg | Retro Display Type

StudioWorks proudly presents  •• R U B E R G ••   — a creatively inventive retro display typeface.!

Ruberg’s mash-up of upper and lower case characters miraculously combine to create a playful, retro-inspired alphabet that jumps and dips as you type! To make this possible, we methodically included a duplicate alphabet using OpenType alternate characters with a different baseline so that tall letters will more easily mesh with short letters. We’ve also machined alternate variations for select glyphs so that you can experiment with your letter styling even more — the type is creatively arranged as you set it! No more excessive tweaking and editing after the fact. Set it and forget it! NOTE: These character alternates are ONLY available in those applications that support Open Type features.

Let’s unpack Ruberg’s specs:

  • ‘Upper’ (A-Z) and two ‘lower’ case (a-z) character sets
  • Additional alternate characters for select glyphs (a,h,i,t,y)
  • Numbers (0-9)
  • Standard punctuation and glyphs
  • OTF file format
  • Free updates and feature additions

Ruberg delivers a fun-loving retro vibe to logos, posters, title cards, film credits, book covers and magazines!  Reach for Ruberg Retro Display Type the next time you’re assembling projects that require some vintage charm!

NOTE: All featured designs use Ruberg. Several images utilize the Papertuity Seamless Texture Pack, MultiGRAIN Brushes, the Bluto Sans Serif Type Family and Powell Rugged Display Type — all available from StudioWorks.
