Ohno Blazeface is a “real” fat fatty of a display serif. Taking a look at the (fatface) genre, I was seeing mostly the same things [over and over]: №1 an inability to treat problematic letters effectively, & №2 a consistently traditional structure. ¶ I was convinced a fatface could be more chill, and so Ohno Blazeface was born. ✌
Ohno Blazeface Italic is a “companion” but is also doing its own thing. Italic fatfaces often sport lovely entry and exit strokes that give words a jolly roundness. These features are exaggerated in Ohno Blazeface Italic, with each hairline terminating in a subtle teardrop shape. Typically, the f, x, and z present some extra whitespace. Since that’s a big no-no in this design, unusual forms were chosen for maximum positive space.
