Tenez is a Grand Slam display didone typeface from Plau.

We designed it for a branding project, further developing the resulting logotype into a typeface we felt could solve many designers’ needs. Its origins are rooted in pointed nib calligraphy which can be seen in contemporary Didot and Bodoni inspired typefaces. But Tenez’s shapes are organic (these modern typefaces were originally cut by hand after all) – in fact, that was the challenge we set from the start: to make a typeface as organic in construction as possible.
