League Spartan Variable

League Spartan Variable

Latest Release All Releases Fontship Build Status

Thanks to Tyler Finck's repeated and exhaustive efforts, League Spartan has been expanded considerably with multiple weights, from Extralight (200) to Black (900). The Bold style (700) is as close to the original League version as you’re going to get here, redrawn for better variable rendering. But take note — it will differ slightly from the first version (particularly in spacing).

League Spartan Styles

Download

The most recent ZIP file with all available font formats can be downloaded from from the Github Releases page. If you'd like to edit the font or just build it yourself, you can clone this repository or download the source of a release and build it yourself using fontship.

Language Support

Afrikaans, Albanian, Azerbaijani, Basque, Bosnian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Faroese, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian Bokmål, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, Vietnamese, Welsh, Zulu

Names

It’s worth noting that you don’t need to use the variable version to get all 8 styles. The static OTF and TTF files (in their respective folders) will work and are simply named League Spartan.

How-to

New to variable fonts? Great, maybe. Desktop applications are slowly adopting this updated font format. Install it like you would any other font, but be aware not all applications support variable font technology yet.

Web use is a different story completely though. The variable TTF file will work on the web for some browsers but the variable WOFF2 file will provide almost complete support for modern browsers. That one file (lightweight at 24 kb!) can serve up all 8 pre-defined styles and whatever else you feel like using. I find that font-variation-settings: "wght" 345; renders better than font-weight: 345; Here is how you can initially call League Spartan in your css, provided your webfont is in the same directory as your stylesheet:

@font-face {
  font-family: 'League Spartan Variable';
  src: url('LeagueSpartanVariable.woff2') format('woff2-variations');
  font-weight: 200 900;
}

About

A fantastic new revival of ATF's classic Spartan, a geometric sans-serif that has no problem kicking its enemies in the chest.
