Mallory and Retina in Vietnamese

Vietnamese Typography welcomes two new additions to its “Type Recommendations” chapter: Mallory and Retina. These two typefaces, designed by Tobias Frere-Jones and his team, are big gains for the Vietnamese language.

I have admired Frere-Jones’s types and wanted to showcase them for a long time; therefore, I am very excited that he allowed me to do so. In return, I hope that my type specimen would bring more attention to people who are interested in Vietnamese typography. I also want to thank my friend Tim Brown for setting me up with Typekit.

Speaking of the specimens, I incorporated both the Standard and MicroPlus variations. If you want to see MicroPlus in action, look at the paragraph text on your mobile device or dragging in your browser.
