How to use Antic for Logo?
Antic is perfect for a logo. Its large open counters create a neutral but relaxed tone. Though Antics only has one weight, the strokes are thick enough to create a legible and memorable logo.
How to use Antic for Branding and Marketing?
Antics is designed to be a reading font and looks beautiful in paragraphs, comforting to the eye. The counter (explained in our Typography Jargon Buster section this week ) in letters are large, making the shapes of letters very apparent and legible and easy to read. It is a great reading font for your blog posts and newsletters. Antic pairs well with serif typefaces, like Bitter.

Typography Jargon Buster!
A counter is an unfilled (white or negative) space partially or entirely closed by other parts of the letters. For example, lowercase “b” and uppercase “U” both have counters. The stroke creating a counter shape is known as a “bowl.” There are two types of counter spaces: open and closed. An open counter means the unfilled space is partially closed, like “U.” A closed counter happens when the unfilled space is completely sealed, like “b.”
