Ostium is a typeface with classic Roman proportions. This typography is based on a modular construction with exaggerated and asymmetrical serifs. Ostium has a stencil look with open forms that inspire its name: Ostium, from Latin, translated as "opening".
It was born in December 2018 with the intention of creating a Christmas greeting for the different social networks. Based on a couple of sketches, a first version of capital letters was quickly drawn. A few hours after releasing the greeting, the character set was growing.
Ostium supports a large number of languages in the Latin alphabet and includes a collection of ornaments and ligatures that reinforce its expressiveness.
