About Corsair PE (Pan-European)

Corsair is a rugged font with a handcrafted touch. Familiar and easy to work with, it has a worn-in feel that slots right into your typographic toolkit like you’ve known it all along. Originally commissioned by Best Made Co., its functional beauty was made to mimic the idiosyncrasies of handwriting. Naturally randomised letterforms lend it authenticity, while weathered edges and subtle variations add a rustic charm. The effect is an honest, approachable, and organic look that’s careful, but that doesn’t overthink it. Goes well with packaging, branding, and product lookbooks alike. Tastes slightly smoky. Gets even better with age.

What others say:

“Where other fonts push randomized letterforms right up in your face to impress with their complexity, Corsair opts for subtlety to achieve a realistic, hand-made feel. It’s humble, but definitely not simple. With 2300+ glyphs and vast language support, Corsair can be used in every place machine-made designs ought to feel human.”

— David Březina, chief type officer at Rosetta
