Yon is a font based on the tuning station (frequency) displays of old radios. To define a style in this vast market with many models and brands, I chose the German company Braun whose radios have modern, functional and very clean designs.
The first characteristic of the font is based on the representation of information, that is, the name of the city and its tuning frequency. Due to a limited horizontal space, it needs to be condensed. The second is the ability to read a very small font, to reduce space. This leads to the third characteristic, which affects square and larger fonts, greater height. Blank insides, which are more squared, make it easier to read. There are ink traps in the closed corners. Yon is a font that can be incorporated into a product’s design, because the closed angles and soft curves emphasize its integration into the body of the product itself.
