I'm working on a (variable) font that has masters with stroke contrast ranging from clearly modulated to monolinear. While I am mostly fine with the contrast axis name, I wonder what name you would find descriptive of those extremes when exported as separate style families?
So far I am working with "normal" and "linear", but especially the "normal" rubs me totally wrong. While for this design it is true that the "natural" state is the master with contrast I don't want to communicate that one is the default or favorable compared to the other. I am not sure how descriptive the "linear" is to graphic designers, either, but my hunch is that many don't instinctively understand what contrast refers to in the context of a typeface family range.
Any references or idea?
