Conto - is a clear and basic sans-serif typeface in eight weights (upright, italic). The thin and black weights are working well in display typography. While the regular, medium and strong weights are likewise meant to stay well in text. It is mainly designed for corporate identity along with the editorial design.

Main characteristic are the minimalistic and decreased lowercase shapes. They are created to match perfectly the uppercase. You see this in the following letters: a, b, d, g, m, n, p, q, r, u. (The connection of the stem to the standard and x-height is missing). This let them remain great in logo-lettering and headings.

Another particular function is the contrast which continues to rise from the thin to black weights. Whereas you can not discover any contrast in the thin weight, you will discover a growing number of contrast while climbing to black.

Conto's special ligatures are made for logo-types and lettering. Therefore you discover Discretionary Ligatures like "r_a", "s_t_u" or "t_y" and a lot more!!! Attempt the OT-feature ss01. Maybe there is something nice for your next logo.

Conto contains around 850 glyphs and supports all latin-script based languages. It likewise includes small-caps and all type of figures you need for serious typography. Naturally you have case and small-cap sensitive punctuation and fractions approximately 1/9 (oneninth).

Nils Thomsen began to draw Conto as his Bachelor thesis in 2008. It is influenced by the lonesome streets of north scandinavia and the dark forrest around. While biking through scandinavia and drinking water from rivers the concept of a basic geometric typeface was born.

In remembrance of Peter Bruhn! Really Conto should be released at the fountain foundry. Throughout my research studies in The Hague I talked to Peter. The interview is gathered in the book 158 responses. Towards this we had a great exchange about my typeface. After some corrections he decided to release Conto. Thanks you for your assistance, Peter !!!
