About this font family
Designed primarily for display use, Tangient is serviceable down to the larger text sizes. It presents an idiosyncratic profile, with a tight fit, clearly proportionally spaced, yet having the texture of a monospaced design. Its shapes leap out from the page, where well behaved characters would make a more subdued statement.
The calligraphy from which Tangient GD was electronically “cut” originally appeared in a series of personal greeting cards prepared by the Zafaranas in celebration of the New Year.
