Nocturno

 

Nocturno among the Best Typefaces of 2013 by Typographica

Type designers, educators, historians, engineers, and users select the year’s best new font releases

Nocturno, the branch of the series optimized for text, is unquestionably calligraphic; apart from tall lowercase letterforms, short ascenders and descenders, an oblique axis (e.g., the canted interior of o) and medium contrast, it features wide and rather hefty concave slab serifs, soft, elongated teardrop terminals (e.g., c, f, r), and slanted top serifs (e.g., h, k, m). The roundness of b, c, o, and p is reiterated by the recurvate inside contours of h, m, and n which not only facilitates reading but also enhances the letterforms' connectedness and rightward drag. Nocturno's open, efficient proportions and flowing italics make for an especially legible text face with sufficient contrast of slope, shape, width, and weights to establish clear hierarchies. Its carefully tuned weights - Regular, Book, Medium, and Bold - also make it possible to harmoniously set lines of positive and negative text.

Nocturno and Nocturno Display are brand new text and headline typefaces engineered for chic, highly elaborate typesetting. Compared to benchmark 'humanist' or 'old style'; typefaces, the Nocturno series is broad-shouldered and heavy-armed: the rolling, dark silhouettes of its characters creates a soothing yet forceful impression that serves to anchor words no matter where they appear. These new letterforms perfectly suit the complexities of editorial design.

Nocturno supports the following languages: Afrikaans, Azeri (Latin), Basque, Bosnian, Breton, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French, Friulian, German, Greenlandic, Hawaiian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Interlingua, Irish, Gaelic, Italian, Kurdish (Latin), Latvian, Lithuanian, Luxemburgish, Malay, Maltese, Māori, Norwegian (Bokmål, Nynorsk), Polish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Romani, Romanian, Sámi (Inari, Lule, Northern, Southern), Serbian (Latin), Slovak, Slovene, Sorbian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish and Welsh.
