Young Finesse font family


Designed by Doyald Young in 2003
Young Finesse is a light, two-weight, announcement face with a large x-height whose characters contain only a few straight lines.
It is based on the titling font that I designed for the dust jacket of my book Fonts & Logos.
Its inspiration comes from Hermann Zapf’s Optima, a serifless roman text face, based on Renaissance inscriptions.Young Finesse italic has a set of elaborate swash caps that reference 16th-century writing hands.
