Chevin is a modern, rounded type family in 6 weights which was designed with functionality and legibility in mind. With its open counters and slightly condensed style Chevin can be used for text and is particularly suited to signage.
Erik Spiekermann is a fan, noting that Chevin “is charming without being cute, and very legible even in small sizes because of its restrained shapes and simple construction.”
Chevin is named after the hill which overlooks Otley in West Yorkshire. Since 2007 the type family has been highly prominent in the UK as Royal Mail’s corporate font and the typeface that adorns every Post Office in the country.
Chevin is available in two versions. The Chevin Pro fonts include additional Greek and Cyrillic layouts as well as more OpenType features than the more basic Chevin Std family.
