The design concept of the Aktaion typeface

Aktaion is not a rounded typeface, rather it plays with the saying that opposites attract. The letters are detailed with contrasting sharp edges and rounded corners, with stems having one straight side and one side with a concave shape. This lends the individual letters a gripping tension – interesting details that show up in large sizes, yet with enough reserved presence which do not distract in reading sizes.

Like my other sanserif typefaces, Aktaion stands in the tradition of the humanistic design approach, too. Because I strongly believe that this offers the best reading comfort in the sanserif genre. This new design can be seen as a less playful development of my first and a bit more informal typeface Finnegan – but with some more vigour than Agilita.
