Background

Karbon is an open, geometric sans serif with a contemporary spartan finish. It is an exploration of Paul Renner’s reductionist Futura concept channelled through the proportions of Eric Gill’s eponymous sans, with a slight nod towards Jan Tschichold’s Uhertype sans-serif. Includes seven weights in roman and italic. Karbon ships in OpenType format and will be available exclusively from vllg.com.
