OrbiBased in Siberia, Natalia Vasilyeva is one of the most prolific designers contributing to Moscow’s ParaType foundry. Her latest offering is Orbi, a type system with a wide array of styles. Orbi consists of ten roman and italic faces of different proportions and weights and three decorative calligraphic fonts. To add a romantic and/or classical touch to your designs it contains three additional fonts of decorated capitals. Initials Three is our favorite: one of the few ornamented alphabets that combines negative (white) and positive ornaments within the same letterform, as in the large ‘O’ in the title of our specimen.

With small capitals for the regular weight and a variety of numerals, the font can be used in many areas: the basic styles are perfect for books and periodicals, the narrow styles work well in the columns and tables of business publications, and the decorative styles stand out in festive typography, packaging, menus and the like. True to its name, which means ‘for the world’, the font comes with extensive language support including, of course, a fine cyrillic set.
