Everest

The tallest ascent, an awkward descent

This font started life in 2005 as “Tall Order” and “Tall Order Bold” before being brushed off and two new condensed variants joined. The font was also renamed to better indicate this is a font that is all about the height and little consideration is given to the descenders.

Wordplay aside this font works quite well although those descenders do feel a bit awkward. Given we’ve used all the pixels there isn’t much that could be done unless your custom renderer can draw p, q, y, and g 1 pixel lower.
