Design Concept

Nocturno is an unapologetically calligraphic typeface with slightly oblique stress and sculpted, concave, almost flare serifs. The dark, broad-shouldered letter silhouettes provide superb legibility, and four finely tuned weights permit the creation of clear text hierarchies. Crisp, precise details, a generous x-height, flowing rhythm and rightward drag emphasise the sense of horizontality guiding readers’ eyes along for immersive reading.

With its Display and Text styles, Nocturno is well-suited for the complexities of editorial design where the incisive display cuts get attention, and the text version quietly gets the job done.
