-OC Pajaro was created by Andrew Bellamy and published by OtherwhereCollective. -OC Pajaro contains 14 styles and household bundle alternatives. p >- OC Pájaro [pah-hah-roh, Spanish for bird] is a modern sans serif readily available in fourteen styles. It combines the legible width, rhythm and routine percentages of a grotesk with roots in a geometric. The outcome is an extremely flexible font style which fuses the classic beauty of Futura with the compact practical typesetting of the similarity Akzidenz and Helvetica.

-OC Pájaro effortlessly passes through the spectrum from high-end sophistication, friendly readability, and functional info style. Crafted with a tireless focus on kerning, angled terminals are cut to fit neighboring curved letters making the bolder weights ideal for logotypes and show type, while lighter weights are well fit for long passages of text. A large x-height and short ascenders that run level with the low cap-height give a strong horizontal focus and permit tightly packed lines of type.

Typical of both grotesk and geometric styles the design has an even weight with minimal stroke contrast and the inclined kind is an oblique rather than a true italic. The default double-story 'a' and 'g' provide a more scholastic touch, while the friendlier single stories are available as alternates.

The font style is developed with substantial open type functions including old design figures when setting comprehensive copy in sentence case and circled uppercase, numbers and signs inspired by 1960s transit signs.
