Multilingual typeface design project for Latin and Hangul in optical sizes

'Opti' is a multilingual typeface design project for Latin and Hangul in optical sizes. It is a serif typeface based on the tools of each script; broad nib for Latin and pointed brush for Hangul. 'Opti' simplifies the shapes of Latin and Hangul whilst preserving the way of writing for each script. It is designed with the intention to achieve harmonisation; to let the two scripts appear as one. It consists of three styles: text regular, display regular and bold. 'Opti Text Regular' is designed to perform best between ten to fourteen points. It has lower contrast and larger x-height than the display versions. 'Opti Display' versions are intended to stand out and create a mood, which entices the reader into the text. They have high contrast with more pronounced serifs and perform well when larger than forty-two points.
