Do You Have a Super-Condensed Sans in Your Design Arsenal?

Let's face it. Design in the wild is WAY different than design on a computer screen.

For example, sometimes big words need to fit in tight spaces (and look while they're doing it).

That's why we made Transistor.

Transistor is a super-condensed, flexible, sans-serif that's perfect for creating headlines and logos that have long words.

The Story

I've always been a fan of mid-century packaging. Especially old hardware store packaging.

Why? My best guess is because I spent a lot of time at my grandmothers growing up. In her garage there was a tool cabinet filled with rugged, faded boxes of screws, bolts, nails, electrical tape and every other kind of household packaging you can imagine.

Transistor is inspired by mid-century hardware packaging. The super-condensed characters give the font plently of utility (fit a lot of words in a little space). The monoweight/geometric forms pay homage to the rugged packaging used for hardware components.

Here's what's included with Transistor:

  • Complete alpha-numeric characters in all caps
  • Full Western European language support
  • Beautifully kerned to look great in tight situations
  • Produced in the popular OTF file format

You'll probably love Transistor if:

  • You do a lot of logo design work and often search for unique (but readable) fonts
  • You create a lot of posters and web work that requires you to fit long strings of text on one or two lines
  • You love to add touches of history to your design (without it dominating your work)

Be sure to share your work with me (you can message me via Creative Market). I love featuring designers work on the RetroSupply ( blog and on social media.

How can I unzip product files?

PC: To extract a single file or folder, double-click the compressed folder to open it. Then, drag the file or folder from the compressed folder to a new location. To extract the entire contents of the compressed folder, right-click the folder, click Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

Mac: Double click the .zip file, then search for the product folder or product file.

If you continue to have trouble, check out this help file for more tips.

What's the other font you're using?

Futura Bold. The entire Futura family is a must-have in my opinion. You'll pay a pretty penny for it but it will pay for itself. If you absolutely must use something else one decent alternative is Source Sans Pro. You can grab it for free here (as always be sure to read and respect the license):

How do I install a font?

After you unzip your font product files, you will see .OTF or .TTF files. To install a font, just double click on the OTF or TTF file. For more information, check out our Font FAQ.
