Rooney Pro is intended for professional designers. It contains lots of typographic features such as small caps, ligatures, different figure sets and alternate glyphs. These features are accessible in OpenType-capable software like InDesign or QuarkXPress. With around 840 glyphs Rooney Pro is a powerful tool for any kind of typographical task.

The idea behind Rooney was to create a rounded typeface without it becoming too playful or trivial. Based mainly on old-style serif construction principles, such as a subtle angle of stress, open letterforms and a gentle contrast, Rooney feels serious yet its rounded shapes and soft curves make for an overall impression of warmth and smoothness. By combining the familiar, readable qualities of a serif face with distinctive and original letterforms, Rooney is a modern and versatile text typeface.
