Designed by Thomas Thiemich

Background

Remo Stencil is designed by Thomas Thiemich and is part of OurType's Stencil Fonts Series of 2012. Remo Stencil is Thiemich's fifth typeface for OurType, joining his Fakt, Fakt Slab, Fakt Soft, and Alto.

Remo Stencil is one of three sans serifs in the Stencil Fonts Series, joining Greco Stencil and Orly Stencil. If Greco Stencil is late ninteenth century and Orly Stencil is boldly now, then Remo Stencil is mid twentieth century, when graphic designers infiltrated the world of typefaces. Its glyphs are constantly moving: strokes advance, turn, and deflect in moves of mock-serious precision. Breaks articulate the moves – an effect amplified by the design's heavy weight – and so become dynamically integral to glyph structure and action. And Remo Stencil has one more game to play: contextual alternates that reposition breaks in adjacent repeating letters, insuring a mischievous variety.

Released by OurType in 2012, Remo Stencil is available in the OpenType PRO, TrueType, EOT and WOFF formats.

The Stencil Fonts Series was launched on April 19 2012 to accompany the exhibition 'Between Writing & Type: the Stencil Letter' held at Catapult Gallery, Antwerp. Curated by Eric Kindel and Fred Smeijers, the exhibition showcased the history and development of the stencil letter and displayed a selection of historical and contemporary artifacts and their applications.
