Custom letters from Sweden

Sometimes that perfect typeface simply doesn’t exist. In addition to our retail fonts, we also develop custom typefaces tailored to suit our clients’ needs. A commission might entail a completely new design or modification of a retail typeface. Other services include lettering, typeface consulting, screen optimizations and education.

Tele2 Slab

With input from Kurppa Hosk we have designed a unique Slab Serif typeface for Tele2. Each style in the family is optimized for its main use area. The strong, compact Heavy weight with lowered diacritics is a perfect tool for setting tight headlines. The Bold style does its magic in sub-headings and short preambles and the Regular style is optimized for body copy, both in print and on screens.

This typeface family is inspired by Italian Art Deco, comes in different styles and flavors and is specifically designed to be used on product packaging. Art direction by Hummingbirds.

  2. Year: 2014

Tictail Sans

Tictail, the design-driven startup that has grown from four guys and an idea to 33 employees and 60,000 Tictail stores, decided they wanted to be different. In a landscape where the majority opt for a geometric sans, Tictail turned to explore another direction to build their brand. Tictail Sans is the product of an ongoing discussion on the nature of Scandinavian Design. The typeface is a contemporary grotesk with open counters and is drawn to perform great on modern screens.

Webfonts for Volvo Cars

On assignment from R/GA Stockholm we have developed a set of screen optimized webfonts for the launch of the new volvocars.com. We fine-tuned the current Volvo Cars font range with outline optimizations, x-height matching, file size reduction and TrueType-hinting. We also redrew an optically thinner version of the classic Volvo Cars Broad typeface for use at smaller sizes.

Expressen, one of Sweden’s leading evening papers, was looking for a custom headline weight of Siri. More and more readers access the news via mobile devices and Expressen wanted to cater to that experience. The commission started with a headline version for large headings but more styles are in the works.
