Opal

by Hannes von Döhren

 

Opal™ is a text face with a noble feeling, yearning for luxury and still delivering. Because of the long ascenders that rise clearly above the capital letters, Opal should be set with generous line spacing. The typeface’s design has the attributes of the oldstyle Renaissance serifs, yet Opal is not based on any specific predecessors.

The Opal type family is available with four basic fonts: Regular, Italic, Bold, and Script. Each font includes ligatures. The Regular, Italic, and Bold also include Small Caps. The Italic and Script fonts include alternates (swash letters). Additionally, each font in the Opal family includes an array of border elements and ornaments.

Through undulating strokes and sharp corners, a cutout feeling is created; Opal’s letters sport inktraps at stroke junctions, which this strengthen this image in larger point sizes even further. In total, the letterforms have clear emphasis on their verticals and horizontals; they do not fear the weight on their curves.

From top to bottom: Opal Script (Swash), Opal Regular (Small Caps), Opal Bold, and Opal Italic. In addition to the Italic and Bold variants, the Opal family includes a unique Script component. Opal Script is well suited for adding more importance to a specific text passage, or for use as an alternative to the standard Italic.

Moreover, each font in the Opal family includes a number of diverse ornaments, arrows, printer’s fists (e.g., hands, pointed fingers), etc.

Also, each Opal font is equipped with a set of border element glyphs, which users may enlarge to their desired size and then reposition accordingly.

With a little bit of care, designers will be able to create the finest of traditional, elegant work with this family.
