Triangular serifs and extremely condensed proportions go hand in hand, as evidenced by the compressed Latins that were a mainstay of display typography throughout the 20th century. This idea inspired the emphatically and exaggeratedly narrow Portrait Condensed. This family’s energetic rhythm also takes cues from French design in the 1950s, particularly the work of iconic designer Roger Excoffon and his collaborator François Ganeau, especially in the design of Vendôme Condensed, which, like Portrait, had also used Renaissance French typefaces as an starting point.
