Type Gallery – Jan
Font Designer: Michael Parson, 2002
Jan™ combines an experimental, bold, mono-weight geometric sans serif with the Arabic writing system’s means of joining letters. Adding in script-like letter connections, a feature that is found in both western cursive and Arabic type, as well as distinctly Arabic-like accents above and below certain letters, Michael Parsons has created a cross cultural typographic statement. Jan Regular is best used for headlines, and small strings of text, in sizes large enough to view and appreciate the unique counter forms within the letters.
