My thoughts on Voyage
Voyage takes your eyes on a journey, with so much to discover! This display typeface designed by Jérémy Schneider from VJ Type is, made for short, large text – the large, the better. What defines Voyage is contrast – between the thin and thick strokes, creating visual patterns of words and lines.
But there is also this contrast between organic and strict. You can see it with the almost rough or dull wedge serifs that are more dominant in the caps, playing a counterpart to the playful and soft lines. The E and H are super strict, the B and P very playful, again, reminding of Art Deco style.
Very characteristic letters to me are the lower case g, h and e. The geometric, circular shapes, loops, the wedge serifs, and the strong contrast are all shown in these few characters. The typeface also comes with plenty of stylistic alternates, arrows and other cool glyphs, worth discovering.
Overall, an interesting typeface for a project that wants to be noble and contemporary, or fashionable while being unexpected.
