Archer Font is a slab serif typeface designed in 2001 by Tobias Frere-Jones and Jonathan Hoefler for use in Martha Stewart Living magazine. It was later released by Hoefler & Frere-Jones for commercial license.


The typeface is a geometric slab serif, one with a geometric pattern similar to sans-serif fonts. It is inspired by designs from the mid-20th century like Rockwell.
The face is unique because it combines the geometric structure of the 20th-century European slab serifs, but imbues the face with a domestic and less strident tone of voice. Balls were added to the top terminals in letters like C and G to increase their charm. Italics are true cursive designs, with calligraphic-influenced flourishes, an unusual feature for geometric slab serif designs. As with many Hoefler & Frere-Jones designs, it was released in a wide range of weights, from hairline to bold, reflecting its design goal as a complex magazine typeface.
