Nautiloid Typeface Family


Nautiloid is a typeface family specialized in typography detailing. Standard ligatures and historical forms are abstracted from 18th-century encyclopedia books. This typeface is a combination of humanist upstraight italic letterforms and contemporary Egyptienne approach.

The Nautiloid Family includes six weights along with italics, fully supported with OpenType Feature. It also supports exotic Latin scripts such as German, Dutch, Icelandic.

The italics are paired with swashes capitals for display usages, providing another option for potentially more complex typographic hierarchy. They can also change the tone of the typeface in specific scenarios.

Shin G.
Is a type designer recently completing a master’s Graphic Design program at ArtCenter College of Design. In addition to designing typefaces, I do enjoy variable things in my life. I enjoy reading, writing, calligraphy, cooking, leather goods and vintage fashion. These habits help me with aesthetical and logical senses outside the world of letterforms. Working on typefaces makes designers’ thoughts organized and rational, but will not blind our vision. I have always been on adventures exploring challenging typography tasks, like interactive typography and multilingual typeface design. I am looking forward to a larger stage for my typefaces and my research and meeting insightful people from all industries.
