I Shot the Serif
To celebrate the release of Jérémy Landes' sparkling sans serif NaN Jaune we thought we'd do our part to keep the web weird. It's a typeface specimen, but not as you know it.

Closed apertures, display for text and text for display, Jaune follows this NaN motto: take a bad idea and do it well, or at least die trying. If one typically avoids colliding glyph anatomy then Jaune looks at the problem upside down and sticks together that which normally shouldn’t touch. NaN Jaune is a collection of three sub-families, one per optical size.
▷ Maxi was created with display in mind. Ranging from the blackest Black to a razor sharp Thin its short extenders make it ideal for compact text blocks and strong headlines.
▷ Midi is the all-terrain middle-child comfortable in all contexts and conversations.
▷ Mini’s open counters, deep ink-traps and simplified structure enhance legibility and eases Jaune’s natural swagger in longer text and smaller sizes.
