Tomorrow’s new typeface: Rene

What if we print a Didone on an old dot matrix printer?

April 16, 2024

Rene is a display serif with flat serifs and exaggerated ink traps, built within a grid of rounded rectangles. Embracing the logic of writing with a pointed nib, this typeface has wide vertical strokes and narrow horizontal strokes.

Rene is a typeface of sophisticated personality. An almost classic skeleton coexists with bit-mapped texture, whereas its upright, static lowercase characters coexist with (little bit crazy) italic uppercase characters. However, Rene’s personality won’t get in the way of the job it does, rather helping it add dynamics to any layout.
