Schick Toikka

German/Finnish design studio and type foundry in Berlin, est. 2012 by Florian Schick and Lauri Toikka, two KABK graduates. Their typefaces:

  • Noe Display (2013, Lauri Toikka). Characterized by high contrast and sharp triangular serifs.
  • Trio Grotesk (2011, Florian Schick). A revival of the warm rounded sans typeface Kaart Antieke (1909, Piet Zwart) which was also published by Bold Monday.
  • Saol (Text, Display), 2012. an interpretation of the Victorian inclination to add exaggerations to text typefaces.
  • Custom typefaces from 2012 until 2013: Nrgm Grotesk (for a Finnish online music magazine), Rapala (for a fishing and outdoor equipment company), Ylioppilaslehti (Finnish university magazine), Ghostwriter Mono (a monospaced rounded sans for the visual identity of the content creation agency Mrs. Muir & Ghostwriters), Zeitschrift der Straße (headline type for a street mag in Bremen, Germany), Tapio Grotesk (for Tapio Anttila's visual identity).
  • Spot Mono (2014). They write: Spot Mono is a monospaced type family inspired by contemporary Japanese display typefaces and classic typewriter typefaces such as Courier. It has a monolinear contrast, rounded terminals and simplified letter construction that lends the typeface a distinctively na├»ve and characteristic appearance. Even though its shapes and proportions are balanced for harmonious and legible body text, Spot Mono is also ideal for big, chunky headlines. Additionally, Spot Mono features a very generous character set including a set of icons and support for extended Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic scripts.
  • FCINY (2014), a custom Peignotian typeface done for The Finnish Cultural Institute in New York.
  • The contrast-rich typeface family Dia (2014) was made by Florian Schick.
  • Krana Fat (2016) is a peculiar display typeface inspired by the letterings of Finnish graphic designer and illustrator Erkki Toukolehto. The original all capital letterings were done in mono line with a big flat brush. Krana Fat appeared first in the German street magazine Die Zeitschrift der Strasse.
  • Scto Grotesk. The Schick Toikka take on the turn of the century grotesks.
  • Lyyra (Standard, Extended, Expanded). Strong-willed, angular, and almost neurotic. A sans that is not happy with the world.
  • Chap: Initially designed for the Finnish Culture Institute in New York, Chap pays tribute to the contrasted sans tradition.
  • Custom fonts: Nike Unlaced, Nora Turato, Instrumentarium, Sennheiser, Flow Festival, Dia Dans, Receptor, Skatta Sans, Demi, Futurice.
