Telemark (Slab Serif Font): Tuesday Type Treat

Telemark is modern slab serif font designed by Swiss art director Juri Zaech and distributed through Creative Market. Telemark is intended to be used as a display font and in logos.

Telemark is a monolinear slab serif influenced by the wide serif typefaces of the 19th century. The name refers to the vintage form of skiing which was introduced in Norway at the same period of time and allowed more fluid turns. After the Telemark style was replaced by newer techniques in the Alpine countries it has experienced a rise in popularity in recent years.

The Telemark type family features the three weights in an additional label style which allows an uncomplicated creation of editable pointers, banners and cartouches. Different combinations of endpieces result in a great variety of designs.

Telemark is suitable for headlines and logotypes and complements script typefaces as well as any neutral grotesque. Details include 207 characters in three weights, a total of six styles and manually edited kerning.
