Typeface: Nori
Typeface Designer: Neil Summerour, Jefferson, Georgia
Foundry: Positype
Designer’s Concept:
Nori is a hand-lettered typeface that contains over 1,100 glyphs, 250 ligatures, 487 alternate characters,125+ swash and titling alter- nates, lining and old style numerals. I do not use digital textures. It is the result of brush and ink on paper. The textures produced in each glyph are real and the imperfections are intentional and add to the sincerity of the letters.
To view the words and sentences formed by this typeface is to look at how my hand makes letters. The fluidity, as well as the irregu- larity, is human, honest and intentional. To do so lets the brush I am holding breathe life into each letter. Once digital, any number of points and repetitive processes can’t mask its influences – and I like that.
