Dr Jekyll & Miss Hyde
A multi-script typeface family
Elena Papassissa developed Dr Jekyll & Miss Hide at the MA course at the University of Reading, in UK in 2012. Dr Jekyll & Miss Hide is a multi-script typeface in Armenian, Greek and Latin, suitable for magazines and children’s books. The family consists of 3 weights (Regular, Bold and Black) in two styles (Roman & Italic) [the Armenian typeface was developed in Roman style only].
The typeface family was designed to work in text and in headings at display sizes. Its forms are funky and strong in personality when used large, elegant and dynamic when set in text.
In 2013 Cyrillic Regular was added to the project.
