Background

Knud V. Engelhardt (1882 – 1931) was an architect, printer and designer from the country of our laid back neighbours, Denmark. Knud’s characteristic letter forms have already made a strong impression on some modern typefaces. Most notably is probably Skilt Gothic by a fellow Swedish compatriot, where Knuds way of trimming the diagonal stems is one of the spices used to give the typeface its character.

Fighting against the desire to make something similar, this new typeface instead takes the concept to a whole new level by trimming not only diagonals, but all possible letters!

The result is something different. Trim comes in a large family including manually hinted webfonts and high quality desktop fonts. Some are fat, some are skinny and some are just lagom.
