The New Type Foundry by Kurppa Hosk
Kurppa Hosk has launched its own type foundry: KH Type. Typography has always been intrinsically linked to the core of Kurppa Hosk’s work, and with KH Type they aim to celebrate their typographic heritage by making their independently designed typefaces available to license.
The type catalog currently consists of four typefaces. KH Teka is a modern grotesque with a rigid and mechanical approach. It’s highly versatile and covers a wide range of characters and opentype features. KH Giga is an exaggerated serif intended for large-scale use. The lengthy serifs even bleed together in the heavier weights, creating interesting word pictures. KH Shutter is an expressive monospaced display typeface inspired by the characteristics of the Hebrew alphabet. KH Interference a versatile monospaced display based on a 45° grid, a monospaced typeface designed for display use. It’s inspired by primitive letterforms, like type on receipts or pixelated type on old screens. Licensing and free trial versions are available at KH Type’s newly released website.
