About this font family
OHG is pleased to announce the release of Tynne 2.0, now with two new out-line, drop-shade fonts which work independently as attractive display faces in their own right or one layer of a two layer, chromatic typeface. In addition, kerning and letter spacing have been adjusted and improved to ensure all characters will line up correctly when layered.
Tynne, Is a strong, wedge-serif, condensed display font. Deep “ink traps”, subtly varied forms and open counters bring to its even colour and pleasingly regular rhythm a bit of syncopation and sparkle making it ideal for packaging, elegant yet informal headlines and posters. More…
The name, loosely derived from an archaic spelling of tin - with a ‘y’ thrown in for fanciness and to give the word a more interesting shape. It is a natural fit to the snipped feel of the sharp, angular, burred edges of the serifs, the open counters and deep notch-like ink traps which are all reminiscent of box patterns hand-cut from sheet metal with a pair of tin-snips and more than a few little cuts on the fingers.
Tynne is an OpenType facet with Post Script outlines and 591 glyphs. OpenType features include over 70 standard and discretionary ligatures (and digraphs), three sets of figures, alternate characters, small caps and swashes.
Russell and OHG are proud to acknowledge the assistance and contributions of fellow type designer, James Arboghast.
