Font Family: Omnes Pro, Number of fonts: 18*OTF, Type Foundry: Darden Studio, Designer: Christian Schwartz, Joshua Darden, Design date: 2009
Conceived with Christian Schwartz for Landor Associates; designed by Joshua Darden, with design and production assistance by Jesse Ragan, Thomas Jockin, Noam Berg, & Scott Kellum.
Omnes Pro takes the curvaceous yet crisp original and turns it up to eleven. Many robust features have been added, making it better than ever for no-nonsense editorial work. Included are a wide range of index characters with eight variations; tabular figures and punctuation for chart work and information design; true numerator and denominator figures with OpenType support for auto fractions; an array of eye-catching arrows; extended language support; and stylistic sets.
Originally conceived as the brand typeface for a national retail chain, Omnes Pro meets the need for a rounded typeface which is neither overly mannered nor excessively literal in its approach. Selective rounding adds subtle texture & circumvents the sausage-link effect, while non-geometric forms pay homage to 19th-century rounded Grotesques which appeared well before the crisp visual style of the Bauhaus.
Omnes Pros middle range is built for text use, and its weights on either end of the spectrum command a broader range of moods, from its austere, warm Hairlines to its punchy, convivial Blacks.
