Knud V. Engelhardt (1882–1931) was an architect, printer and designer from the country of our laid back neighbors, Denmark. Knud’s characteristic letterforms have already made a strong impression on some modern typefaces. Most notably Skilt Gothic by a fellow Swedish compatriot, where Knud’s way of trimming the diagonal stems is one of the methods used to give the typeface its character.
Fighting against the desire to make something too similar, this new typeface instead takes the concept to a whole new level by trimming not only diagonals, but all possible letters!
The result is something – different. Trim by comes in a large family. Some are fat, some are skinny and some are just lagom.
