The Designers Foundry, also known as TDF, has released the final version of its Morion typeface.
“Since the first draft of Morion typeface in 2014, the aesthetic vision of Morion has remained true, but has undergone constant refinement and critique,” TDF says. Three years later, they’re publicly releasing the final typeface designed by David Einwaller with assistance from Daniel McQueen. See a gif of their process, above.
“From combining two diverse stylistic elements in type design, wedge-shaped serifs and floral terminals Morion has a slightly playful, calligraphic look that remains balanced and controlled,” TDF says. “While Morion may function best in decorative, larger applications; OpenType features like an alternative lower case ‘a’ increase legibility in smaller text sizes. Morion is delivered in two weights and supports Latin-A Extended and was designed by David Einwaller for The Designers Foundry.”
To celebrate three years of hard graft, The Designers Foundry have created a two-part physical goods capsule. The first is a 12-page newspaper specimen, and the second, a run of 50 waterproof coats featuring the word “global”, referencing the foundry’s “hand-picked international team of type designers”.
