New Type: MarignyMarch 27, 2014

Marigny, designed by Tal Leming of Type Supply, is a friendly typeface that takes its job seriously. It lives in the intersection of writing, lettering and typography. Technically, it’s a typeface, of course, but it looks like a very nicely lettered interpretation of a handwritten version of a traditional typeface. (Yeah, whoa.) Marigny has the same basic proportions as classic oldstyle typefaces like Garamond. These, combined with the hand-rendered forms, give blocks of a text a warm, inviting appearance. Plus, the soft forms look great in headlines and logotypes. It has small caps, swashes, ornaments and more. I had a lot of fun designing it and even more fun making graphic design with it. I hope you like it.

The family is named after a neighborhood in New Orleans. Wondering how it is pronounced? When I was growing up in Louisiana I always heard it pronounced as “mare-ah-knee” so that’s how I say it. It’s French. Or, at least it’s the South Louisiana version of French that I learned in school.
