Oldenorth is a display typeface that focusses on legibility from a mid-distance while also adding a unique decorative characterism to it: Low Cap-Height, flat surface on each glyph and a few unique glyph designs (m,k.) Combining soft curves and sharp strokes/endings, making it both dangerous but also elegant in its total. These features make it also possible to kern the glyphs tight together.
Oldenorth took quite some process since its first draft which was drawn manually. The maker took inspiration from old scripts found in books but soon enough these drafts began to transform to a more elegant and simplified way.
The name Oldenorth origins from the place where the font has been made. Literally translated back from English to Dutch, Oldenorth means; ‘Oudenoord’. Which is a street name in The Netherlands, Utrecht.
— Total glyph set: 98 characters
