Linotype Ordinar Italic


Linotype Ordinar Italic
Linotype Ordinar, from Swedish designer Lutz Baar, is part of the TakeType Library, chosen from the entries of the Linotype-sponsored International Digital Type Design Contest 1999 for inclusion on the TakeType 3 CD. A headline type, this font is available in regular, italic and double weights. The figures are based on the form of a rectangle. The forms on the base line are relatively large and the ascenders and descenders relatively short. The strong figures make a modern and cool overall impression and emphasize the vertical strokes. Among one another, the letters are rather similar, which can reduce legibility in longer texts. Linotype Ordinar is best for short to middle length texts and headlines. Linotype Ordinar double can be seen as a kind of experiement. The figures of the other two weights are set against a background of an outline typeface, which interrupts the strict character of the typeface on the whole and makes it look three dimensional. The unique characteristics of this font are especially highlighted when it is used in its negative form.
