Panno Sign Font Family
Panno Sign is a typeface optimized for signage and developed for the romanisation of street names in South Korea. Since these signs can contain up to three different notations for one name (in Korean, Chinese and Latin) one of the main challenges was saving space whilst maintaining optimal legibility. To achieve this, Panno has narrow proportions, a very large x-height, and especially open counters. The letterforms are simple and robust with only minimal stroke contrast. Panno brings optimal functionality with a bit of fresh, warm air onto signs where traditional wayfinding typefaces like DIN may feel too constructed or cold.
