New Release

Skilt Gothic

Knud V. Engelhardt was a Danish architect, printer, and designer, who also made typefaces for signage. He used rough building blocks to construct quite unique type. “When I came across some of Engelhardt's sketches from the 1910’s and the early 1920’s I just had to take those heavy constructions and make a solid typeface family for the 21st century out of it,” recalls Swedish designer Mårten Thavenius about the Danish inspiration for his Skilt Gothic.

Skilt Gothic is robust enough for use in display and text settings and has the characteristic of being both hefty and unruffled, lending itself to creating a strong identity for magazines and newspapers.

18 Styles: Thin, Light, Regular, Medium, Semibold, Bold, ExtraBold, Black, and Ultra; All with Italics.

Skilt Gothic is provided as premium OpenType fonts with a full set of professional OT layout features and extended language support.
