Background

Developed in two series, Parisine began as a custom typeface developed for the Paris Metro network (RATP) to improve signage legibility and space economy in 1996. In 1999, the family was improved & enlarged to extend its use and function. Parisine is separated into four distinct subfamilies (Clair, standard, Caps, Sombre) to optimise menu compatibility between Mac/OS & Windows systems.”
