Type of Design: The roman faces are old style designs based on the basic shapes and proportions inspired by the 16th century punch-cutters Hendrik van den Keere and Robert Granjon. Inspiration for the italics comes from the 16th century writing masters Giovan Francesco Cresci, Ludovico Vicentino degli Arrighi – and Robert Granjon‘s italics.
Uses: This is a design made for textual and editorial content. Books, periodicals, catalogs, brochures and advertising copy are natural environments for the Cardamon family. In addition, its large proportions, strong serifs and simple character shapes enable the face to perform well in digital, on-screen applications.
