P22 Saarinen is a Sans Serif typeface with a rather modernist look. It is not occasional as it is created in order to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Kleinhaus Music Hall in Buffalo, New York. This building is widely recognized as one of the finest music halls and is a real architectural masterpiece. The concert hall was designed by one of the most renowned architects of his time – the Finn Eero Saarinen under the guidance of his father Eliel. It was the architectural lettering that Eero used in his drawings that inspired the designer of the P22 Saarinen font family. Those letters were combined with various other variants in order to create a contemporary font family that will keep the casual style of the originals.
P22 Saarinen font family comes in 8 very interesting weights. They include Pro and non-pro versions. The Pro ones are designed in such manner as to provide wide range of different opportunities to the users to customize the letters by their own liking. They offer multiple variants of every letter as well as features like directional arrows, Central European character set, small caps and fractions. The non-pro variants differ according to the position of the cross bars. Also a special font of regular and bold arrows is included that emphasizes the technical origins of the P22 Saarinen typeface.
