Annual ID



Nyght Serif is a contemporary serif with a spicy character. Its contrasting forms combine smooth and sharp curves, like blade serifs and spurs. Work on it began during the study of the well-known Caslon's serifs. However, under the influence of calligraphy and modern serifs, Nyght Serif has been greatly transformed. The typeface presents a wide Latin character set as well as Ukrainian Cyrillic. Nyght Serif is being published while its development is still in progress, and there will be many updates.
