Remo Stencil is designed by Thomas Thiemich and is part the OurType Stencil Fonts Series of 2012. Remo Stencil is Thiemich’s fifth typeface for OurType, joining his earlier families Fakt, Fakt Slab, Fakt Soft, and Alto.
Remo Stencil is one of three sans serifs in the Stencil Fonts Series, in addition to Greco Stencil and Orly Stencil. If Greco Stencil is late ninteenth-century and Orly Stencil is boldly contemporary, then Remo Stencil is mid-twentieth century, which is the time when graphic designers infiltrated the world of typefaces. Its glyphs are constantly in motion: strokes advance, turn, and circle back in twists of mock-serious precision.
The breaks help to articulate the appearance of motion – an effect amplified by the design’s heavy weight – and so become dynamically integral to the glyph structure and action. And Remo Stencil has one more trick up its sleeve: it includes contextual alternates that reposition the breaks in adjacent repeating letters, creating a mischievous variety.
Released by OurType in 2012, Remo Stencil is available in the OpenType PRO, TrueType, EOT and WOFF formats.
The Stencil Fonts Series was launched on April 19 2012 to accompany the exhibition ‘Between Writing & Type: the Stencil Letter’ held at Catapult Gallery, Antwerp. Curated by Eric Kindel and Fred Smeijers, the exhibition showcased the history and development of the stencil letter and displayed a selection of historical and contemporary artifacts and their applications.
Remo Stencil supports 108 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
