Northerner is a small type family based on a set of capitals created by Michael Freimuth. It is an unapologetically digital take on traditional forms, its inline strokes hovering just shy of monoline, their rounded ends in dialogue with the typeface’s rectangular serifs.

I refined Michael’s capitals while creating a matching lowercase, and wrote a Python script that drew the inline strokes. The typeface includes both lining and old-style figures as well as two bird ornaments.
