Fino Stencil

Designed by Ermin Međedović. Released 2016.

The Fino type system amplifies the genre’s most theatrical aspects while bestowing an uncommon flexibility of style and variation — all the more true when pairing this stencil version with the sans and serif cuts.

The history of the 20th century graffiti art is a long and well-documented story, but with the recent popularity of all things urban and street art related that have benefited a great number of contemporary urban artists who now combine street art with studio-based works, it is always good to remind ourselves of the originators of the street art and graffiti scene. The 21st century has seen these two movements become recognized art forms bound to break away from being branded as forms of vandalism.

While some of the original graffiti artists from the 1970’s managed to cross over into the art gallery world, only recently has it been seen as the norm for artists to work both outdoors and in the studio. This has been aided somewhat also by the rise in galleries that now specialize in exhibiting urban contemporary artworks. But first, let’s go back a little further and find out just who is responsible for those spray cans that are equally loved and hated […] — by Steve Gray @ WideWalls.

The Backstory

Fino Stencil

A dramatic, contemporary Didone titling family that scales beyond the world of looks by tapping into archetypes.

Tall, stately, and refined, with a showy contrast between thick and thin, a certain kind of titling Didone has become synonymous with fashion. Ermin Međedović’s latest type system amplifies the most theatrical aspects of this genre while bringing an uncommon flexibility of style and variation to any type palette — particularly those required for editorial design. 

Fino is a Rational (or Modern) display serif with sharp details. Its fairly narrow proportions produce a regular beat of bold stems at frequent intervals. One can add an unexpected twist to this plot line by introducing the alternate ‘C, D, G, O, and Q’ (found in the uppercase); these replace the standard, narrow oval shapes with big, full, show-stopping round ones. Other alternate forms, along with a grand ensemble cast of ligatures, lets the director continually flip the script.

This stage is set in three acts: FinoFino Sans, and Fino Stencil. Each of these offer six weights and italics, and each actor is comfortable speaking any Latin-based language, from standard Hollywood English to the many accents of Eastern Europe. Finally, every style comes in two optical sizes, with Title having the finest hairlines for the biggest parts. This lets you put Fino to work in a variety of productions, from short texts (24pt–48pt settings) to epic titles. The complete Fino family, along with our entire catalogue, has been optimised for today’s varied screen uses.

All these talents let Fino perform a range of roles far broader than your typical Bodoni or Didot.
