Font Family: Pinion Display, Number of fonts: 2*OTF + 2*WOFF, Type Foundry: Greyletter, Designer: Neil Patel, Design date: 2010
Pinion Display is a modern decorative typeface that is constructed using simplified mechanical ornaments blended with irregular curves and flared serifs. The result is a font with the consistent rhythm of a sans-serif and a touch of historical charm.
The goal of Pinion Display was to create a modern decorative face that is constructed as if using industrial techniques. Characters were fabricated, rather than drawn, by joining together a variety of components. Proportions and curved forms were then fine-tuned to achieve balance and approachability when characters are combined into words. Finally, capitals without ornaments and small caps were added to make the typeface more versatile.
