Up next is O. The letter’s form has changed little from the Phoenician ’ayin, which depicts an eye. Yes, ’ayin starts with an apostrophe. The Greeks, who pioneered the concept of vowels, separated O into small and large versions (both capital letters) called Omikron and Omega.

Staff Picks, July 2011

Summertime and the living may be easy, but we still have type on the brain. This month’s FontShop Staff Picks are here. We’ve highlighted three below so you can hear why our employees picked them.

Oxtail by Stefan Hattenbach

Michael, First Officer of our SF crew, likes Oxtail from PsyOps Type Foundry. “This is one of my favorites because it’s sophisticated, tasteful, and has a splash of sass,” he explains.

Designer Anna picks FF Polymorph for its international flavor. “FF Polymorph intrigues me with its variety of forms inspired by characters from all over the globe,” she notes.
