Arpona

Arpona is a typeface for anyone who prefers to stand out from the crowd, than to go with the flow.

Arpona is inspired by roman letters carved in stone but otherwise difficult to categorize. It is neither a pure serif nor a sans but rather a symbiosis of different design concepts. Because of its… weiterlesen
