Essie is a serious typeface created for editorial needs. It features subtle sharpness which gives it personality and spike. It’s proportions are vaguely reminiscent of grotesque forms mixed with translation contrast giving it more dynamics. Family containes serif text style with italic, bold for emphasis and the finishing touches are more refined display cuts which excel in bigger sizes showing off unusual, yet subtle forms.
