VideonVideon



Videon is an experimental typeface which consists of only straight lines. Key features include consistently slanted edges, optically similar letter widths, and gaps where the connection of the stroke would otherwise look a bit boring. The most conspicuous letters for the observer are almost certainly A, V, W, v and w. Though they usually require more spacing, here they are slanted on just one side. The numerical digits are just as idiosyncratic. In smaller font sizes, Videon is amazingly legible, and in larger font sizes it is a real eye-catcher.

OpenType-Features
Videon fonts are available in OpenType Basic (no features) and OpenType Expert (features included). OpenType features provide advanced typographic performance and can be accessed by almost all professional layout software.


Various numerals
Videon Expert fonts come with proportional lining figures with varying widths and kerning. Oldstyle and tabular figures are available via features. The space glyph measures exactly half of the width of tabular figures, therefore it can easily be used for spaces in tabular composition.

Fractions
Numerals separated by a slash will be replaced automatically by real fractions.


Superiors
Standard figures will be replaced by superior figures.


Inferiors
Standard figures will be replaced by inferior figures.


Language Features
Correct typographical glyphs e.g. in Romanian (commaaccent replaces cedilla) and Turkish (dotaccent on the small caps lower case i).


The typographic layout features can be accessed via the Opentype palette (Illustrator) or the Character palette (InDesign and QuarkXpress). All glyphs available with the font can be seen in the Glyph palette.
