Jack Yan, 1997-2000
Our 1997 type release, JY Décennie, has been designed for both the web and print. Essentially applying the principles of newspaper typefaces, attention has been paid to the Windows versions of the family to ensure clarity when used in web browsers. It was originally conceived with an Australian broadsheet newspaper in mind, and ultimately launched to commemorate JY&A's 10th anniversary. Input for the design came partly from JY&A Fonts' site visitors using the Font Studio feedback form.
The design itself is based on Australian and New Zealand wood type, which was used widely by European settlers during the nineteenth century.
There are small cap and expert fonts, as well as a Titling Roman and Italic, for use with initial caps or headlines. Titling is JY&A Fonts' first display typeface, with a design that complements Décennie's text sizes. A sans serif version, JY Décennie Express, is also available.
All typefaces have been fine-tuned, with the text fonts featuring 2,200 kerning pairs each and Titling featuring 3,300.
