Aremia is a serif typeface inspired by late Renaissance-era type but with a modern twist, designed by Ognjen Gligorijevic, a graphic designer and founder OGV Design, based between Serbia and the Netherlands. Gligorijevic creates stylish, boundary-pushing work that moves between the commercial and artistic world. Working among brand identity, art direction, editorial design, and typography, especially for clients in the cultural field, Gligorijevic’s eye for minimalism with flair is evident.

Gligorijevic’s idea for the Aremia typeface was to integrate contemporary aesthetics to classic form. Inspired by Mannerism, also known as the Late Renaissance, a style in European art that emerged in the later years of the Italian High Renaissance around 1530 and lasting until about the end of the 16th century in Italy when the Baroque style largely replaced it, Gligorijevic designed a typeface that embraces the quirky and ornate details typical of the time period, while adding a strong, contemporary feel.
