What is the Rion font?

Rion is a high-contrast ‘modern’, or Didone-style font family, with a calligraphic flourish. It is intended for typesetting headlines in editorial design settings, as well as signage, the larger texts in exhibition graphics, or any other place where you need big, elegant-looking type. Rion takes inspiration both from straight-axis nineteenth century typefaces and pointed-pen calligraphy. Its letterforms contain a high degree of stroke-contrast; this gives them a look of sophistication. The family includes six weights, ranging in style from Light through Black. Each weight has both an upright font and an italic on offer. The fonts’ default numerals are proportionally-spaced oldstyle figures. Lining figures are also available, via an OpenType feature. Rion’s characters are all a bit condensed; this narrow feeling is especially present in the fonts’ uppercase letters. The ascenders of the lowercase letters rise slightly above the tops of the capitals. In the upright fonts, the ‘a’ and the ‘g’ are double-storied. In the italics, they are single-storied. Each font includes small caps, and 13 f-ligatures, too. Special characters in the fonts – such as the hashtag and the @-symbol, as well several punctuation marks and mathematical glyphs – are drawn with thin, monolinear hairline strokes, allowing them to disappear into the background somewhat, and let the real alphabetic characters shine more prominently. Rion is the work of Barbara Bigosinska, a Polish type designer living in the Netherlands, who is a graduate of the MA Type & Media programme at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague.

Are you looking for a free download of Rion? Most of the fonts on MartinWaitFonts.com are premium, which means Rion is not a free font.

You won't find Rion as a free download, so I would advise you just to go ahead and pay for it and download Rion HERE. You can find some other great options here on MartinWaitFonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Rion are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.

Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!

It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.

If you really want Rion and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on MyFonts.com. Here you will be able to obtain the proper license. The designer and publisher deserves to be paid for their work, as they have put in the hours and the creativity to produce such an amazing font. Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
