Feijoa Design Information

29 March 2007

Feijoa is the first typeface issued by the Klim Type Foundry. It’s based on the principle that ‘a straight line is a dead line’, which explains the warm, curvaceous nature of the individual letterforms. This relieves it from the sharp points and angles that can be detrimental to digital typefaces and works to humanise the overall visual impression. The core of the Feijoa family — Medium, Italic and Bold — are the text weights, useful for book typography and extended periods of reading. The Display is drawn specifically for headlines, effective for sizes 16pt and larger. All styles include several fanciful ligatures inspired by the wonderful Mrs Eaves, designed by Zuzana Licko.
