OUGD404 Design Principles Type Journal Heavy Sable Label

The most noticeable thing with this font is the way the capitals have  a straight orientation but the lower case are italic. this creates the impression of something special and important in a similar manner to medieval illuminated manuscripts. The font is clearly derived from sable origins because of the smooth way the line weight changes, rather than instantly changing at a curve like anything calligraphic would.
