TenezDesigner: Rodrigo Saiani
Publisher: Plau
Tenez was developed by Rodrigo Saiani and released by Plau. Tenez includes 8 designs and household plan choices. p > Big News! Tenez has actually been picked for the Tipos Latinos Biennial 2016 and Typographica's Favorite Typefaces of 2015!

Tenez is a Grand Slam show didone typeface from Plau.

We designed it for a branding task, further establishing the resulting logotype into a typeface we felt might resolve many designers' needs.

Its origins are rooted in pointed nib calligraphy which can be seen in modern Didot and Bodoni influenced typefaces. However Tenez's shapes are organic (these contemporary typefaces were originally cut by hand after all)-- in reality that was the obstacle we set from the start: to make a typeface as organic in construction as possible.

This echoes some of late 19th century typefaces and advertising, yet we believed of it for modern uses.

One of the numerous special features of Tenez is its unusual Thin weight, in which the contrast between thin strokes and the black location left by the serifs makes for a typewriter-like character. The italics provide a perfect counterpoint to the roman weights.

Tenez was unapologetically conceived as a display screen typeface suggested to be used large as in magazine openings, drop caps or everywhere there's a requirement for elegant impact.

The household consists of support for almost all Latin languages available, figure sets for almost every conceivable occasion (tables, text, you name it), rotates for the quirky gorgeous R (sometimes easier is much better, but not always!) and Q (with a great big tail for that article opener).

Tenez pairs actually well with our no-frills sans-serif Motiva Sans and our cute vertical connected script Primot.
