Ohno was birthed in 2015, from a deep appreciation for lively typefaces, and simultaneous dissatisfaction and amazement at the current type design landscape. The goal has always been to create quality work that highlights under-appreciated genres, and respects history without reinventing the wheel. Good spacing reigns supreme.
