Memimas · Type-Ø-Tones

This is the font with which we all learned to read and write. We know that it stirs much affection because it reminds everybody of their primary school days, and most of you will find it has a self-explanatory name.

Its shape is engraved on all our minds as if on stone.MeMimas was the first typeface to be commissioned to Type-Ø-Tones. In 1991,the Barcelona-based publishing house, Barcanova, needed a digital version of this typeface to use it for its children’s books.

We came up with a structure –a skeleton– which evolves into four weights, and has a set of links between characters which is peculiar to script fonts. The actual version has been named Pro as we reunited in single weights both Alternate Caps, Ligatures and a number of useful OpenType features.
