November is a rational, utilitarian typeface for highly legible and effective street wayfinding and information systems. Unlike most signage types it also handles long texts with ease. While most tool-based typefaces feature angled terminals, November’s end strokes are always straight, anticipating the following letter, creating distinctive counterspaces that support the visual rhythm of the words.
November is available in three logical widths, which offer complete typographic palette for the most demanding designers. The Condensed and Compressed versions solve setting long words and sentences next to short words set in the regular width version of November.
Symbols & Arrows
November is ideally suited for the information signage and wayfinding projects, and includes a collection of transportation and travel-related signs, symbols, icons, and various sets of arrows.
When the job takes you around the globe, November is ready to go with you. Supporting not only Latin script, but also Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Armenian, Georgian, Devanagari, and Tamil. November is a font with a global language support ready to get down to business in over 200 languages. Further writing scripts are in development.
Indic Text Shaping
With this project we have redesigned our production workflow, calling on Liang Hai, a Unicode expert and independent researcher into complex writing scripts, to draft a tutorial for the production of Indic fonts. Having tested this method on November and October, we have now published the document under an open source license. It provides detailed background on the text shaping of Brahmic languages, explaining their logic and outlining techniques for turning encoded Indic letters and diacritics into rendered text.
