Orator STD

Orator STD has been a favorite typeface of mine for a while now… just never knew what it was called. I’m not sure what it is about it that i like. It’s a tall type and the letter forms are slim though the font is still legible. I also like how the low case letters are capitalized as well but still smaller than the upper case letters.

helvetica is such a simple typeface that it is very versatile in how it can be manipulated and applied.
