The Great Dionysia & Ogg

Ryo Sekino 関野亮 and Yuko Sekino 関野ゆうこ are handmade glass artists based in Tamba-Sasayama, Japan who apply classical glass-making techniques in modern vessel designs. Mazzybox of Studio NA,EO in Beijing designed posters for an exhibition, The Great Dionysia, featuring their work that uses Ogg as a primary typeface alongside Adobe Song for Hanzi and Kana scripts.

In an interview with Mazzybox, she said she sought a typeface that reflected the same harmony between the classical and modern in Sekino’s works:  
“I chose Ogg as the main font in the poster because it keeps the classical aesthetics of serifs while retaining the modernity of visual representations. I appreciate Ogg’s delicate serifs and handling of thin lines — it is no doubt a distinguishing typeface and it fits perfectly for the theme of this exhibition.”
