Romek is a serif font family designed for a wide range of uses from branding to editorial design. Romek has been developed and refined over the past two years. Its design inspiration come from typefaces such as Genzsch-Antiqua (1906), Orlando (1920) and Paganini (1928). It began as a display typeface and evolved into a text typeface after many reworking.
The font consists of 7 weights and 14 styles in total: Thin, Thin Italic, Extra-Light, Extra-Light Italic, Light, Light Italic, Regular, Regular Italic, Medium, Medium Italic, Semi-Bold, Semi-bold Italic, Bold, Bold Italic. OpenType features include case-sensitive forms, ligatures, old-style and tabular figures, numerators, denominators, fractions, ordinals, small caps and Roman numerals.
Romek was designed during the peak pandemic period, specifically during Andrea's return to his hometown of Rome (Italy).
