The objective of this project was to design a new typeface series for Grazia magazine. First published in 2010, Regal was later revamped and redesigned for commercial use, evolving into a type system with five related superfamilies. According to the brief, this typeface had to be elegant, luxurious, sexy, vibrant, reflect the female sensitivity and take into consideration a modern woman who is more proud, more connected, more spontaneous, open-minded and eager to try a whole host of new products and services. Targeting this consumption-wise and well-educated woman, required a typeface that is not strictly based on classic forms, but incorporates several distinct elements that express a modern woman’s personality and the products she consumes. In that respect, a whole series of 5 related superfamilies was designed, which not only emphasize femininity but also reflect both the romantic as well as the dynamic side of the female personality. For that matter, elegant curvy details were introduced in order to create a link to the female figure; teardrop terminals which reflect a woman’s sensitivity; pronounced quirks on upper and lower arms for her eyelashes; high-contrast, sharp corners at thinning terminals for her high heels; alternate glyphs for the woman who prefers to express her individuality -rather than slavishly follow trends- by using various accessories which can dramatically change her appearance; elegant endings and long curves to reflect her predisposition to dream; bell-shaped serifs with an inward rather than outward direction which recall streamlined seventies fashion. This series of typefaces is diverse in its construction as it consists of five related superfamilies i.e. text, display, finesse, swash and stencil. There is a variety of weights which range from regular to ultra black for each one of the five families. These families share common attributes but they differ in content according to each one’s usage. The whole superfamily type system is comprised of 47 weights with an average of 898 glyphs per weight. It supports simultaneously Latin, Cyrillic and Greek and comes with many alternate glyphs.
Geogrotesque Stencil Font Family
Geogrotesque Stencil is the newest member of the popular Geogrotesque family, it has been thought as a display typeface, but it goes one step further and tries to solve some of the typical problems of stencils fonts. Most stencil fonts don't have a wide range of weights, Geogrotesque Stencil has a range of 7 weights. Another characteristic of this type of fonts is that the cut usually does not adapt well to the size or the use of different materials, generally it has a wide cut that works well in small sizes but in larger sizes is not very elegant, on the other hand a thin cut does not work in small sizes and affects the reading. Geogrotesque Stencil tries to solve these problems with 3 levels of cut (A, B and C). The thin cut (version A) matches the stem width of the Thin weight, in version B is twice as wide and in the version C is three times more wide. The cut maintains the same width through all weights and are not rounded, also other details have been modified for this stencil version, such as the “notch” of the n, a, b, d, p and q, or k where the horizontal arm disappears, these adjustments allow a better functionality of the typeface. The cuts not only allow a better performance when printing at different sizes, but also allow you to use the version A, B or C in accordance to the rigidity of the material you have, for rigid materials use the version A where the cut is more thin and passes unnoticed, while for lighter materials you can use the version C where cuts are wider and help keeping the material more stable. The type family consists of 21 styles, 7 weights (Thin, UltraLight, Light, Regular, Medium, SemiBold and Bold) available in 3 versions (A, B and C) in Open Type format with support for Central and Eastern European languages.

PF Din Stencil Font Family
Despite the fact that over the years several designers have manually created stencil lettering based on DIN for various projects, there has never been a professional digital stencil version of a DIN-based typeface. After the successful introduction of DIN Monospace a few months earlier, PF DIN Stencil now completes Parachute’s extensive library of DIN superfamilies. It was based on its original counterpart DIN Text Pro and was particularly designed to address contemporary projects, by incorporating elements and weights which are akin to industries such as fashion, music, video, architecture, sports and communications. Traditionally, stencils have been used extensively for military equipment, goods packaging, transportation, shop signs, seed sacks and prison uniforms. In the old days, stencilled markings of ownership were printed on personal possessions, while stencilled signatures on shirts were typical of 19th century stencilling. Two companies dominated the market in the mid-twentieth century: the Marsh Stencil Machine Company in the United States and the Sächsische Metall Schablonen Fabrik in Germany. Ever since the late 1930s, it was the German Sächsische Metall Schablonen Fabrik which used heavily the new DIN 1451 standard font (introduced in 1936), attempting to overthrow the reign of the Didot-style modern roman which was at the time the most common stencil letter in Germany. These letters were manufactured mainly as individual zinc stencils which could be ordered in sizes between 10 and 100mm. The DIN Stencil family manages to preserve several traditional stencil features, but introduces additional modernities which enhance its pleasing characteristics and make it an ideal choice for a large number of contemporary projects. Furthermore, the spacing attributes of the glyphs were redefined and legibility was improved by revising the shape of the letterforms. The DIN Stencil family consists of 8 diverse weights from the elegant Hairline to the muscular Black. Currently, it supports Latin, Eastern European, Turkish and Baltic.
