Gist from Yellow Design Studio is an inline slab serif with a retro yet modern vibe. It's a collision between monoline slab and indie script. With 627 glyphs per weight, it's highly customizableˇ­either keep it simple with the base character set or use ligatures, alternates and swashes for extra flair. All-caps typesettings have an especially retro edge. Also included are line layers for adding color to the inline areas.

Gist has both Upright and Regular (italic) versions. It includes a complete set of funky contextual alternate caps plus some schmancy lowercase variations. Most caps have additional swash versions as well. A bunch of other capital and lowercase alternates are thrown in for an especially pleasurable typesetting experience.
