1 Style | Flavia Zimbardi, Tida Tep


A low contrast type family inspired by Film Noir titles and end credits from the 1940s–50s. First designed by Tida Tep in 2017 (as her degree project for the Type@Cooper extended program in New York), Octavia shines with a nostalgic charm and open color that provides optimal readability — especially at small sizes against dark backgrounds. Regular weight is the initial release of a bigger family encompassing 16 styles, from Hairline to Black and its matching italics.
