La Fontaine is a clean, neo-grotesque, that has been softened through the use of open shapes and curved details on selected characters. La Fontaine was originally developed for a Danish Architectural firm. The typeface had to balance functionality and aesthetics, and therefore used decorative and curved elements in a systematic and straight design to give the characters personality and the texture a lively flow. The curved details are particularly noticeable on the lowercase letters a, r, s and t.
