About Pattern Font Family
The Pattern Project is an ornamental display type family. It is inspired by medieval initials and transforms their mesmerizing rhichness of detail into cool state-of-the-art typography. All letter shapes and patterns are exclusively geometric, providing a very distinct and contemporary feel.
Pattern is the new sexy – perfect for vodka labels, record sleeves and posters. For editorial design and packaging. With a special typographic impact.
Some practical details:
- Family consists of 9 diverse patterns + a blank version.
- 3 weights available.
- As with patterns in general: It is quite essential how far you zoom in to change the graphic impression. 3 pattern resolutions (Coarse, Medium + Fine) allow varying the pattern size independently from the font size.
- Each pattern comes with diverse weights and/or pattern resolutions.
- Use in display sizes only. The bigger – the better!
- Fine pattern resolutions require even larger font sizes than coarse resolutions.
- Fonts gain kind of ʺtransparencyʺ through the patterns - handy for use on top of images.
- Characterset is caps only and supports Central, Eastern and Western European languages.
