Ogaki PRO

A cool typeface I found at Designed by Aron Jancso and released in November '09 this typeface is designed mainly for display purposes as the designer explains.

'Ogaki is an experimental typeface family for display purposes, great for logos, headlines, posters, or anything in sizes 48 points and up. The design is based on playing with unusual solutions and high contrast in shape detail. Inspiration comes from modernism, calligraphy and traditional terminology of serif typefaces. It's extra heavy and delicate, extravagant and legible at the same time. Heaviness is granted by thick stems and bold shapes lacking real interior negative spaces. Outlines were the key to legibility'.
