Typeface of the Month: Arkit

by CAST

Author: Isabella Krüger

This Sans Serif gives you both: a geometric, working horse that fits in any point size and becomes a special and playful companion for display applications in the thicker cuts.

Arkit is a “constructivist” sans but beneath its geometric appearance lurk humanist undertones and an organic essence that can be felt rather than seen—as for instance in the slightly tapered strokes. Arkit has a big x-height and is suitable for signage and many display applications. It also performs well as a book face, in body copy, captions and with texts at small sizes too. The complete family features ten styles from the extremely light Hairline to the extremely heavy Bomb.
