About this font family
Eileen is an art-deco-style typeface with five weights. It mixes two popular sans serif styles from the 1920s: capital letters are art deco, and the lowercase is geometric. Each font contains alternate forms of “ C,” “G,” “J” and “S.” The lowercase letters include a number of constructed features: “a” and “g” are both single-storey, while the bottoms of “t” and “y” are straightened out. Some of the non-alphabetic characters are unique, such as the narrow dollar and rupee currency symbols, as well as the brave ampersand. Eileen is named after the Irish furniture designer Eileen Gray (1878–1976). She was a pioneering Modernist, and this typeface is a fitting typographic tribute to her work.
