About Yink Font Family

Yink takes big, bulbous, ball terminals up a notch, by repeating the shapes not only in the black but in the white space too. This interplay between black and white shapes is reminiscent of the yinyang symbol in places, which is where the name Yink originates. It's a shamelessly over-the-top font, and should be set large.

There's a handful of OpenType features, including ligatures and alternates:

Ligatures for ff, fft, ft, tt, gj

Alternates are grouped into stylistic sets:

1. An alternate u, possibly more legible, but definitely not as much fun!

2. Again, a more boring version of m, just in case the default is ambiguous.

3. A more exuberant L

4. A blackletter informed T

5. Alternate P and R

6. An alternate 1 (one)

About Eclectotype

Eclectotype is the foundry of Dave Rowland, and has been making retail and custom type for over a decade (formerly known as Schizotype). As the name suggests, the catalogue features an eclectic mix of styles from text workhorses to full on display faces. This is not a foundry that likes to stick to trends or expectations, often to the detriment of commercial success, but strives to make every release useful, original, and interesting.
