We designed Tenez for a branding project, further developing the resulting logotype into a typeface we felt could solve many designers’ needs.
Its origins are rooted in pointed nib calligraphy which can be seen in contemporary Didot and Bodoni inspired typefaces. But Tenez’s shapes are organic (these modern typefaces were originally cut by hand after all) – in fact that was the challenge we set from the start: to make a typeface as organic in construction as possible.
One of the several unique features of Tenez is its unusual Thin weight, in which the contrast between thin strokes and the black area left by the serifs makes for a typewriter-like personality.
Tenez was unapollogetically conceived as a display typeface meant to be used large as in magazine openings, drop caps or everywhere there’s a need for elegant impact.
As always, we couldn’t help ourselves, designing 625 Glyphs (including support for almost all Latin languages available), figure sets for almost every conceivable occasion (tables, text, you name it), alternates for the R (for the rainy days) and Q (with a nice big tail for that article opener).
