About this font family
Passenger Display is a high-contrast “modern” or Didone-style font family. It is intended for use in headlines, signs, or posters – any place where you need to set large, elegant-looking type. Passenger Display takes the idea of early-nineteenth century types – vertical axes of stress, combined with ball terminals – and dials up the stroke-contrast and degree of sophistication. It features serifs that thin gradually into fine lines and points. The family is ready for use in editorial design and corporate communications projects. Passenger Display includes seven weights, ranging in style from Extralight through Extrabold. Each weight has both an upright font and an italic on offer. The fonts’ default numerals are proportionally-spaced lining figures. Via the OpenType features, there are also oldstyle figures and tabular figures available, as well as a full range of numerators and denominators for typesetting fractions. The ascenders of the lowercase letters rise up above the tops of the capitals. In the upright fonts, the ‘a’ and the ‘g’ are double-storied. In the italics, they are single-storied. Each font includes 13 f-ligatures. Passenger Display has a companion typeface available for larger-sized applications: Passenger Text. Passenger Display and Passenger Text can be used together to powerful effect in magazine layouts, or in exhibition design graphics.. The Passenger families were designed by Diana Ovezea and Samo Ačko.
