Issue 31 Venue


PF Venue takes its cues from several sans serif type styles of the twentieth century particularly the more subdued and sleek geometric styles of the Art Deco movement, characterised by the low and high-waisted monostroke designs. Venue is a quite large x-height set of 2 families with alternate letterforms, which manifest a unique texture when set in uppercase. The daring combination of non-uniform structures such as the normal narrow forms with the alternate wide forms exudes a striking eye-catching personality. Consider using these for posters, ads, book covers and imaginative fashion editorials.

PF Venue draws inspiration from numerous condensed grotesques used by music album covers since the fifties. Underlined by the avid necessity of the underground music scene for non conformity, expression, freedom of spirit, rule breaking and challenging preconceptions, this collection pays tribute to a rocker at heart! The full collection includes 2 separate families Venue and Venue Condensed which support Latin, Greek and Cyrillic. Each family includes 5 weights with 5 sets of alternate letterforms.

Stencil version (free with entire family - not sold separately)
