OurType Tiina by Valentin Brustaux is a text typeface conceived in a typographic tradition where type discretely stays beside the content. Tiina's character catches reader's attention just enough, without distracting.

The slightly waving stroke of Tiina delivers a dynamic impression when used in large type sizes. At the same time, its relatively low contrast delivers an even, clear and strong text image in reading sizes; its qualities make sure Tiina will not flimmer in smaller sizes. A good and safe choice for all sorts of text which just want to be read, not to impress!

Brustaux's aim was to create a coherent, contemporary, all-purpose text typeface, which lends a modern yet warm voice to tradition. Although evoking the specificities of the broad nibbed pen, Tiina's design is not a calligraphic labour, but more a pragmatical reinterpretation of its qualities.

The first, two-weight version of Tiina was designed in 2007 in partial fulfillment of the MATD at the University of Reading, UK. OurType Tiina was completed with Fred Smeijers.

OurType Tiina family consists of roman and italic designs in five weights - Light, Normal, Medium, SemiBold and Bold. The PRO character set includes small caps, lining, old style and small cap figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; comprehensive scientific superiors and inferiors, nominators and denominators; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols (in tabular and proportional widths); arrows; standard and discre-tionary ligatures; and a complete range of accents for all Latin-script-based Western, Central and East European languages.

Produced and released by OurType in 2010, Tiina is available in OpenType PRO, TrueType, EOT and WOFF formats.

Tiina received Type Directors Club Certificate of Excellence in Type Design in 2008, a nomination for the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2009, and more recently, the prestigious Swiss Federal Design Award in 2010.

Über Typografie lassen sich unzählige Gesetze schreiben. Das Wichtigste ist: Mach es niemals so, wie es jemand vor dir gemacht hat.
— Kurt Schwitters
Noel Gallagher may not read it
Noel Gallagher’s statement that reading fiction is a “fucking waste of time” and readers are “putting themselves a tiny little bit above the rest of us” – is a valuable contribution.
Cathy Nicol: Isle of Joy
Vince Smith met bandmates Jim Kelly and Nancy Gibbs at a Sex Pistols concert, where he tried to kiss Sid Vicious’ guitar and got a bloody nose. Together they formed Aftershock, and for a while they made a lot of noise, a bit of money and caused a sensation wherever they went.
