Panno Text is a reworking and extension of Panno Sign and is optimised for continuous text. Similar to its signage counterpart it has narrow proportions, a very large x-height and open counters. The letterforms are simple and robust with only minimal stroke contrast. Panno brings optimal functionality with a bit of fresh, warm air to applications where typefaces like DIN may feel too constructed or cold. It feels comfortable and adapts in many complex environments, be it editorial use, corporate design, in exhibitions or in manuals.
Compared to Panno Sign, many shapes in Panno Text have been adjusted and the spacing has been completely reworked to assure excellent legibility in small sizes. Furthermore, the family has been expanded into six finelly attuned weights and to complete the typographical palette, each weigth is now accompanied by true italics. Panno Text comes with an extended Latin character-set and several OpenType features that give access to fractions, different styles of numerals, and stylistic alternates for ‘a’, ‘g’, ‘y’ and ‘&’.
