Unzyale Introduction

About Unzyale

The Unzyale typeface is born from long-term calligraphic experiments with a broad nib pen. Initially started as a modern interpretation of the Unzialschrift, the final alphabet is rather a mix of other traditional handwriting and free forms. The letters are unified by a common angle, balanced proportions and high contrast.

Even though beeing an All Caps font, Unzyale has plenty of glyphs to play around with. Besides fancy ligatures and alternate swash caps, there're diacritics, punctuation and many symbols in an alternative, monolinear style, reducing the calligraphic influence and bringing in a modern vibe.

Although Unzyale is designed purely as a display typeface, it comes in three optical sizes differing in contrast, form and spacing. It can therefore be used in various ways; full-frame or as a graphic pattern, as a headline or punctual highlight, or in smaller sizes next to a neutral text typeface.
