For this same reason it can be used in a vast variety of projects, such as logos & branding, stationery, book covers, magazine design, clothing prints & tags, packaging, animated videos, and many more!
Austral Slab has three sets of alphabets in uppercase and lowercase to avoid repeating the same character pattern, and giving the font a more natural handwritten feel. This is included in the Open-Type Contextual Alternates, which applies an automatic substitution of glyphs as long as the Open-Type features are activated. Also, Austral Slab offers other Open-Type features such as Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures, Discretionary Ligatures, Fractions, Superscript, Subscript, Denominator, Numerator, Scientific Inferiors & Kerning.
This font has a very large glyph coverage and can be used in a wide range of languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, Polish, Czech, Vietnamese, Finnish, Icelandic, among many others.

font process    
The irregular strokes of this font are inspired by the silhouettes of mountains, treelines, old broken wood, among others.
The textures this font offers are inspired by rust, water and humidity drip marks, dirt, maps, road lines, and many other objects and textures I found from July 2015 to April 2016, living in San Juan, Argentina, and traveling to Mendoza, Córdoba and Monte Hermoso (Buenos Aires).
These images were taken by Julia Martinez Diana as inspiration for Austral during the first stage of the creative process. The design of outlines and textures were inspired by these landscapes.
This theme also had a huge role in Austral's identity, and therefore in the design of the imagery. Travel & journeys were used as the main topic of this font's language.
