Font Information

The name Nord is, actually, my misspelling to Node (it is where plant’s stem/branch starts to grow). I had not aware of it for a long time, and now I leave it misspelled. So, the imege of Nord does not come from Scandinavia - Nord is an old French term for Northern, Nordique means Scandinavian. The shape with the ovals in the same proportion for the terminals/curves in letterforms, it suggested me the imege from plant. That is why the name came from. I maintained the bold complement which had been completed in 1992, then exhibited it as free font.

In 1999, Donald Beekman sent me his work of my Nord included its thinner/thicker variations. Regular weight for Nord had been already on drawing board, and I decided to add more complemental versions to it by seeing his work. Now its Regular and Black weights are newly available.

Later, I added more complements for Nord as Extended Family: Small Caps, Large Lows (enlarged lower cases as upper cases) and Composite (a combination of these two complements).

Nord is designed by Yamaoka Yasuhiro 1992-2001.
