Although it was actually intended for large words and slogans, Carree also has decorative possibilities in continuous text. By contrast to most other typeface designs, the outer corners are angular and the inner corners are round. The composition of this font family is as unorthodox as its usage.
Carree fonts are available in OpenType Basic (no features) and OpenType Expert (features included). OpenType features provide advanced typographic performance and can be accessed by almost all professional layout software.
Carree Expert fonts come with proportional lining figures with varying widths and kerning. Oldstyle and tabular figures are available via features. The space glyph measures exactly half of the width of tabular figures, therefore it can easily be used for spaces in tabular composition.

The typographic layout features can be accessed via the Opentype palette (Illustrator) or the Character palette (InDesign and QuarkXpress). All glyphs available with the font can be seen in the Glyph palette.
