Quinn, Bold Monday’s latest release by Diana Ovezea, offers a typographic system suitable for editorial design of all kinds, but the reliable and resolute family works particularly well in non-fiction publications, like textbooks and catalogs. But its not all facts and figures. Quinn’s got enough personality to hold its own on posters and packaging or in any branding campaign.
Ovezea was inspired by the realist serif faces of the past like those by Johann Fleischmann, but Quinn is firmly rooted in the modern age with its high stroke contrast and vertical emphasis. The series features two optical sizes: Quinn Text in 10 styles for sizes between 6–24 points and Quinn Display in 14 styles for use above 24 points. The Display features slightly shorter ascenders and descenders while the top serifs of its lowercase align with the x-height, contributing to its stability. Pronounced ink-traps and curve adjustments in the Text let body copy stay clear in small sizes. This flexible system allows for complex typographic hierarchies and elaborate, varied layouts.
