New type family this week: Oui FY, the latest face to come from Fontyou.

Normally when seeing a set of three fonts of the same weight, one assumes the distinction is primarily that of width. In this case though, it’s height. Set alongside one another at the same size, widths harmonize while the cap heights rise and fall by style. Designed by Christina Poth for FONTYOU to carry the visual identity of a dance theater’s publicity material, Oui FY plays along a relatively untouched axis formerly the prerogative of lettering alone.
