Orna falls in the realm of display typefaces influenced by Art Nouveau and Blackletter Calligraphy, all while emphasized under a contemporary light. The condensed letterforms, wedged latin serifs and star-shaped tittles act as contrasting modern elements to traditional design practices. The blend of rich Rotunda influences and intense Art Nouveau curvatures allows the strokes to pour into their distinctive spaces. The fluid strokes compliment the firm letterforms, like ornaments — allowing Orna to lead with intensity and whisper allure. Orna not only visually acknowledges the history of Typography, but also pushes the boundaries of what typographic conventions can be.
