Stag started in 2005 as a small, muscular family of slab serifs intended to be used for display typography in the US edition of Esquire magazine. Subsequent years saw the magazine’s need for additional variations on the same basic theme eventually turn this small family into a sprawling and somewhat eccentric collection. Such a wide range of variations inevitably leads to a wide range of tones and moods, but the entire collection shares a certain masculinity, tempered by a warm and friendly tone which has been introduced by a large x-height and the subtle rounding off of some of the hard corners.
