Happy to work behind the scenes, yet able to take center stage. Sophisticated, yet never intimidating. Designer Michael Harvey has imbued a typeface with the personality of Billy Strayhorn, jazz great Duke Ellingtons right-hand man and collaborator. Strayhorn, a sans serif adaptation of Harveys Ellington, eloquently conveys a dynamic range of emotions. The light and regular weights of Strayhorn provide easy legibility at text sizes, while the subtle curves and lilting terminals - not quite serifs - add calligraphic flair at display sizes. Use the bold and extra bold faces for a more vigorous presence in headlines, advertising or on the Web. The companion Small Caps and Oldstyle Figures package ensures that, like its versatile namesake, Strayhorns artistic repertoire is virtually unlimited.
