Packard Old Style Pro is an old-style serif font family with a small x-height. It was digitally engineered by Steve Jackaman and Ashley Muir.
In 1916, Oswald Cooper of American Type Founders created Packard Old Style for the Packard Motor Company. Morris F. Benton, also of ATF, is credited with adapting the original weight and creating an additional bold weight. Jackaman and Muir updated Packard Old Style for the digital age and created its sister font family, Packard New Style Pro.
Packard Old Style Pro has an antique, rustic feel, and performs equally well in display and text. Several swashes were developed for added versatility and beauty.
