ABOUT







Jaakko Suomalainen

Type designer at Helsinki Type Studio. In 2011, he co-designed the sans typeface Relevant Regular with Niklas Ekholm. Corporate typefaces include Ylioppilaslehti (2014), Raudus sans and HTS Sans (2014, for Art Fair Tokyo), HTS One and HTS Mono (2016, with Niklas Ekholm), Botanic (2014, for Robin Albrecht), Yksi Sans (2015, for Yksi magazine).

In 2015, Juho Hiilivirta, Niklas Ekholm and Jaakko Suomalainen co-designed the custom typeface Finlandica. Finlandica was commissioned by the Prime Minister's Office as part of a visual identity for Finland. They write: Ink traps like cuts from a blunt ax, makes the typeface reliable in small sizes and gives it character in large headlines. Like the Finnhorse it's a breed suitable both as riding horse and workhorse. Free download.

In 2016, he finished Shoni Sans.
