Morion was designed (with assistance from TDF founder Daniel McQueen) by David Einwaller a graphic designer from Austria with a big interest in contemporary art and photography. He is mainly focused on print design, especially on book and editorial design, but is always looking out for new challenges in visual creation.
“Since the first draft of Morion typeface in 2014, the aesthetic vision of Morion has remained true, but has undergone constant refinement and critique,” TDF says. Three years later, TDF have publicly released the final typeface.
“From combining two diverse stylistic elements in type design, wedge-shaped serifs and floral terminals Morion has a slightly playful, calligraphic look that remains balanced and controlled,” TDF says. “While Morion may function best in decorative, larger applications; OpenType features like an alternative lower case ‘a’ increase legibility in smaller text sizes.”
