Background

Orly Stencil has its roots in the work of cutting small stencils from paper, card or film using simple tools like scissors or knives. Such stencils are usually free of complex curves and other fine details simply because they are difficult to produce with any precision. By avoiding these difficulties designer Pierre Pané-Farré has created energetic word-images from a frugal diet of shapes. Additional styles of Orly fonts, including non-stencil versions are currently in development.

Orly Stencil is part of the OurType’s latest release – the Stencil Fonts Series – launched on April 19 2012 to accompany the exhibition ‘Between Writing & Type: the Stencil Letter’ held at Catapult Gallery, Antwerp. Curated by Eric Kindel and Fred Smeijers, the exhibition showcases the history and development of the stencil letter and displays a selection of historical and contemporary artifacts and their applications.
