Part of the Stu font family, Stu Mid keeps all lowercases tucked within the x-height space. The character glyphs can be used interchangeably between the various Stu styles to achieve a more "bouncy" typesetting effect.

Stu pays homage to oldstyle numerals, where type designers vary the heights of numbers to resemble a line of running lowercase text. It seeks to address the question: "What if every lowercase alphabet also had varying heights?" The result is a font family with full-fledged ascenders ('Hi'), strictly x-heights ('Mid'), and only descenders ('Lo').

Very nice! My fav + 10!

It would be great to have the nice gif (or jpg) of just the mutation of the three fonts without that blue line and other background stuff that makes it hard to see properly, IMHO. Great work anyway.

@elmoyenqiue: Thanks for the kind words! I ran into some weird morhping problem when I solely used text for the sample. Perhaps I'll try again another time.

The software automatically interpolating medial frames can often produce funky results…
