type design, 2022

Oudyn is a humanist sans typeface that contrasts faceted interior corners with smooth exteriors.

Inspired by Tippe Canoe by W.A. Dwiggins, the main feature I designed for this typeface is the contrast between the faceted corners against smooth exteriors. The slight concave bow curves the stems of the letterforms before reaching a sharp point at their corners. A semi-low contrast typeface, humanist sans, Oudyn currently comes in 5 weights.
