Infini is a unique display typeface with a decidedly contemporary design. Inspired by epigraphic writing, its various styles – roman, italic and bold – are the upshot of a fruitful dialogue with the history of typography, whose milestones are retraced by Sébastien Morlighem below in a brief history of writing. Infini also admits of a creative and playful use of words, pictograms and ligatures.
