    a different hairline typeface
  • Opium is a dynamic inverted-serif typeface that is modern and exact. Opium is a headline type, a type that needs to be printed in large dimensions to be properly admired. Opium is a font with many faces. In my mind I have already cast him as a person. He is a narcissistic young  man. He simply needs the attention, but not in any way: Opium does not scream for attention. He is sly. He manipulates you and somehow convinces you to love him without making it obvious. He is a smart young man, who can express himself well. A man of few words, he prefers to be observed. The common people admire and look up to him. This is why Opium is a headline type. The little black copy letters on the page are Opiums subordinates. 
    Opiums letter shapes harmonize very well with each other. They have a strong presence and a stable structure without being geometric. The straight lines are never actually straight. This allows letter forms to appear much friendlier than average modular typefaces. A high constrast is achieved with the filled ink-traps (tears), which makes Opium stand out on the page.
