Hybi5 was designed by Peter Hübner and published by Hybi-Types. Hybi5 contains 8 styles and family package options.  

The Hybi5 font family can be described as a "crossover" between Antiqua, Grotesque and Brushscript with characteristics from all of this genres.

My aim was to design friendly and versatile fonts, which can be used for headlines or slogans as well as for some longer texts.

To make the fonts useful for as many languages as possible, I added a lot of exotic accents. All styles contain the whole "Adobe Latin 3 (CE)" character set plus a few letters from "Adobe Latin 4".

A lot of ligatures prettify the look of the fonts. Alternate uppercase letters in the script style might do the same.

If you are a professional designer, you will surely appreciate the thousands of kerning pairs within each style, which will make your work easier.

I recommend to set Kerning to "metric" and spacing to "zero" in your layout app.

Back in 2015 I worked on the first sketches of "Hybi5" using Adobe Illustrator. "Fontself Maker", an extension for Illustrator, was used to convert the drawings into font-files. This tool can only create "OTF" font files. For this reason there are no "TTF" versions.

It's not the first font I have ever made, but the first to be distributed commercially.
