Playfair Display is a transitional serif typeface designed by Claus Eggers Sørensen and released by the Danish type foundry, David Berlow of Font Bureau in 2011. It is inspired by the classic typefaces of the late 18th century, particularly those of John Baskerville. Its design features include strong serifs, open counters, and a large x-height, giving it a bold and legible appearance. Its character is timeless yet modern, and its versatility allows it to be used in a variety of projects, from editorial design to websites. It is a good fit for projects that require a classic yet contemporary look, such as luxury brands, fashion magazines, and lifestyle websites. Its distinct design elements give it a unique and eye-catching appearance that evokes a sense of elegance and sophistication.
