Linotype Sukothai
– available in Light and Bold weights

Sukothai™ Regular Sukothai™ Bold

Linotype Sukothai is a traditional Thai design based on early metal type. The classic and distinct forms make it excellent for setting text at small sizes or in large passages. Originally released by Linotype for digital photocomposition, now both the Light and Bold weights are available in OpenType format. This makes it possible to dynamically and precisely position the various levels of superscript and subscript vowel signs and tonal marks. In addition to this, the complete Unicode page range for Thai is covered to ensure flawless conversion between other OpenType fonts using Unicode. The accompanying Latin design matches well in scale and texture and supports most Western European languages making it ideal for setting bilingual texts.

Helvetica has also learned to speak Thai: the Thai font designer Anuthin Wongsunkakon has created Thai versions of the classic typefaces Helvetica and Neue Helvetica. These versions are available in the weights Light, Regular and Bold, with the corresponding italic variants. Helvetica Thai harmonises perfectly with its Latin original and these two can thus happily be used in combination. With its pared-down and simplified form, Helvetica Thai replicates the appearance of modern Thai calligraphy.
