RionDesigner: Barbara Bigosińska
Publisher: Indian Type Foundry
Rion was developed by Barbara Bigosińska and released by Indian Type Foundry. Rion includes 12 styles and household bundle options. p > Rion is a high-contrast 'modern-day', or Didone-style font family, with a calligraphic flourish. It is meant for typesetting headlines in editorial design settings, in addition to signage, the bigger texts in exhibit graphics, or any other location where you need huge, elegant-looking type. Rion takes motivation both from straight-axis nineteenth century typefaces and pointed-pen calligraphy. Its letterforms contain a high degree of stroke-contrast; this provides a look of sophistication. The household includes 6 weights, varying in design from Light through Black. Each weight has both an upright typeface and an italic available. The fonts' default numerals are proportionally-spaced oldstyle figures. Lining figures are likewise readily available, by means of an OpenType function. Rion's characters are all a bit condensed; this narrow feeling is specifically present in the fonts' uppercase letters. The ascenders of the lowercase letters increase slightly above the tops of the capitals. In the upright font styles, the 'a' and the 'g' are double-storied. In the italics, they are single-storied. Each font includes little caps, and 13 f-ligatures, too. Special characters in the fonts-- such as the hashtag and the @- sign, also several punctuation marks and mathematical glyphs-- are drawn with thin, monolinear hairline strokes, enabling them to disappear into the background somewhat, and let the genuine alphabetic characters shine more prominently. Rion is the work of Barbara Bigosinska, a Polish type designer living in the Netherlands, who is a graduate of the MA Type & & Media programme at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague.
