ABOUT







Klavika

Eric Olson's sans family Klavika (2004) has many followers. Yves Peters writes: Klavika is a versatile workhorse typeface. Despite its clean design, it manages to retain a certain warmth and openness. The roman sports a lovely lowercase a, a cute little alternate ampersand, and one of the most beautiful lowercase g's I have seen in this type of design. The fact that it is released as fat OpenType is just icing on the cake and gives the competition a serious run for its money. Eric Olson explains: I was a little reluctant about the typeface for several months and even shelved it completely at one point. Anytime you apply some amount of simple geometry (in this case, straight sides) to a typeface the chances for stylistic overlap become great. Faces like DIN, Sophisto, Bell Gothic etc. have straight sides so the push to differentiate from them was tough. In the end I just forgot about it and tried to make an open, solid and logical typeface. Hopefully something flexible and rugged. Similar typefaces, as listed by Stephen Coles:
