Parisine Office

The Parisine Office typeface family can be considered as the text version of the Parisine. When Parisine xheight fit Helvetica large xheight, Parisine Office is more close to Gill Sans in term of proportion, as it was developed for Ratp, the public transport in Paris to allow compatibility with documents set in Gill Sans without changing the length of text.

Parisine Office by default is a humanistic sanserif available in 4 fonts perfect for text setting. When OpenType features activated (in Pro version), it transform radically into a ligatured sanserif and change dramatically any texts, from caps setting to lowercases settings. The design of the italic lowercases is more cursive than in Parisine. Several sets of figures are provided—standard, oldstyle, and lining—in tabular and proportional widths as many usual OpenType features.
