Poignant_filmPOIGNANT is an elegant titling font that combines aspect of a “modern” or Didone font with calligraphic flourishes. Available in roman and italic.

Poignant was inspired by the hand-lettered titles of certain Twentieth Century dramatic films, including All About Eve (1950), Gentleman’s Agreement (1947), and Niagara (1953), all art-directed by Lyle Wheeler, perhaps a clue to the original hand.

Version 1.5 features an expanded character set and improved spacing and kerning.
