QueryDesigner: Michael Cina

Question was created by Michael Cina and published by Associated Typographics. Inquiry contains 8 styles and family package options. p > The most modern gothic.

Query was substantiated of a family tree of experimentation and developing a voice within type. I wanted this typeface to have a strong personality but also provide room for legibility. The typeface was motivated from individuals like Karl Heinz, to Hamilton's Class L typefaces, and even civil rights posters from 1968. My original intent was to make a single typeface that transformed the spirit of woodtype, but done in my voice today.

As I continued to improve the work, I ensured that the personality, tone and voice was still there. I also improved Inquiry so that when used for display or text, it was clear but still distinct to anything I have actually seen. When I was approaching completion of the black weight, I saw that more weights needed to happen. I consisted of over 400 glyphs that support lots of languages and likewise included three levels of stylistic sets for additional use. Inquiry is as fun to use as it is to look at.
