Time and a Word was the brief phrase on the Yes album of the same name which inspired this font. On the album, the lettering was accorded deep drop shadows, which I've left off in order to expand the uses of the typeface. This was a fun font to make, and it came together very quickly.

Yes:TimeWord is a rounded sans-serif with some backward letters and other assorted oddities. It works great for display uses, but is surprisingly legible for main text, too. It has upper (hollow) and lowercase (solid), numerals and punctuation. As with all the Dreamfonts, it has been optimized for on-screen viewing and proportioned specifically for use on the web.
