Estiennium is a humanist
sans serif with a quirky personality. The design began with the uppercase
O, which was originally drawn as a modified super ellipse with its corners
clipped off. The bowls of the uppercase and lowercase letters follow the same
shape but stand off from the geometrically flared stems as if they had been
slowly pulled away to show the connective tissue that binds them together.
Estiennium is named for the first family of French printers. This was intended primarily as a text face with a series of weightsregular, demibold, bold, extrabold and blackthat would allow a greater variation of weights.
