Developmental Commentary

The unicorn is a magical creature of legend. For those of you who don’t know, the unicorn is basically a horse with a giant horn protruding from its forehead. The horn was believed to cure most sicknesses and diseases. Since a horse is a pretty common animal I decided to make the body of the unicorn type relatively traditional. The medium weight and subtle serifs make it easily identifiable, yet noble. I added the traditional unicorn spiraled horn to the type and give it a magical twinkle. Basically the type is a sturdy respectable type with a magical anomaly.
