Background

In Balto, the designer has focused on emphasizing the base ideas of the style rather than particular visual attributes, quirks or artifacts of bygone type technologies. This allowed me to rethink many common assumptions about the shapes of the letterforms and the result is a clean, modern typeface that honors the noble history of the American Gothic.
