ObanPublisher: Alias
Oban was released by Alias. Oban consists of 8 styles and family plan alternatives. p > Originally drawn as a rebranding proposition for a style home, Oban takes motivation from Thorowgood types and from sample books of wood cut typefaces from the late 19th century, with their perky and meaningful, heavyweight graphic, often naively drawn types. Oban has a modular geometry and its character shape has an extra sharpness, with the slight curve connecting vertical to horizontal and curve to straight line of the originals minimized to a sharp angle. It has two versions, with ball terminals or triangular serifs, each with a backwards italics and outline. The backwards italic suggests the kind of self-consciously quirky concept a nineteenth century type founder may have had.
