The original Funkis was designed in 2016 with Fredrik Gruber for a collaborative art project, Funkis is a display typeface drawn for bold lettering and signage. It comes in three different weights of all capital letters. The digits are inspired by the characteristic number signs, commonly used on functionalist buildings and houses. The characters are heavily inspired by the letters that Sigurd Lewerentz made for his poster for The Stockholm Exhibition in 1930. This was an event that had great impact on architecture and interior design in the years to come, and is considered the breakthrough of functionalism in Scandinavia.

In 2018, Letters from Sweden re-released Funkis on Funkis ABC with a major upgrade: the typeface was completed with a full lowercase complement. But, the most exciting aspect of this new version was the possibility to customise its design according to common principles found in geometric sans serifs.

Funkis A references strict geometric designs with pronounced circular forms and closed apertures. Funkis B has softer curves and open forms that end at approximately 45°. Funkis C harkens back to architectural designs with straight, horizontal transitions and finials. Each of the three basic variants can be outfitted with sharp corners. Furthermore, you have the choice between circular and square dots for punctuation and diacritics. A final option is the possibility to add ink traps for using Funkis in smaller sizes.

We are now releasing the variable font of this project (including the static 120 fonts) and have therefor moved all licensing of Funkis ABC to our main site, but you can go to Funkis ABC to get an overview about the project.
