Background

A font where “each word that’s set approaches becoming its own logo” is how some have described this unique typeface.

Originally inspired by an enamel sign he picked up at a Paris flea market, Michael Doret says that the seven letters contained in the sign were enough to suggest to him that here were letterforms put together in a way that he had never seen in a contemporary digital font. Always eager to create something a little out of the ordinary, he took up the challenge to flesh out the forms into a complete font.

Orion can be defined as a geometric, connecting script that is at once contemporary, yet classic and timeless.
