Background

From Bangkok, Thailand, comes Kondolar, a striking take on the increasingly popular genre of slab serif text-and-display fonts. Designer Ekaluck Peanpanawate based his design on a simple skeleton: straight sides, gently curved horizontals. That squarish silhouette combines very well with the short, sturdy serifs, some of which are asymmetrical. And while the alternate extended legs on the K and the R seem a bit out of character on such a straight-faced metallic font, they combine remarkably well. With a well-built character set including small caps and several numeral styles, and a supple italic for the Regular weight, Kondolar is surprisingly versatile for such a small family. Besides its use as a text and display typeface in print, we predict a prosperous career as a web font.
