No straight lines

Satyr won a gold medal in the Visuelt Awards 2013! A text face cannot stray far from convention and still remain usable — a book face even less so. Yet even within these constraints Satyr manages to bring something entirely new to the table. It contrasts convex with concave curves, sculpting letterforms instead of adhering to the traces of a physical tool. Satyr is complimented by Faunus, intended for larger sizes. About the design
