Penumbra Serif™

By Adobe

Lance Hidy

Penumbra is a capitals only design. Based on inscriptional capitals, the style progresses from a sans serif to a serifed design. The Penumbra font family is useful for posters, book jackets and labels.

The style axis progresses from a sans serif display design to a full serif design, including flare serifs and half serifs. Consistent design characteristics hold the family together they ensure that serif and sans fonts work well together. The weight axis ranges from a tall and narrow light to a solid and dominant bold.

The style range displayed (pun intended) in this super family, from a Futura®-like sans serif font to a Sistina™- like serif font, mean that the Penumbra fonts can be successfully used in a myriad of display situations.
