Striver is an sharp editorial type system that was carefully designed to ensure optimal performance at different scales: Display, Text and Micro. We started by designing the display version, where everything is sharp and tightly fitted to ensure bold impactful headlines. The italics of this version keep the same spirit with a slight inclination and contemporary letterforms. Then when we felt we had achieved it's maximum performance we carefully reconsidered every decision we had made for the other two styles. Experimenting with different proportions, character shapes, italic styles, angles and more. The text version saw it's proportions readjusted and it's typographic details relegated to the background, with more neutral letterforms to ensure legibility. For the very same reason, we chose to accompany this style with a classical italic. The Micro version was equally calibrated for it's size, mainly trough the addition of prominent ink traps, and new proportions. Instead of matching this version with a traditional italic we opted to develop a slanted roman in order to preserve the distinguishing features of some of it's characters, like the double-story a and g.
