Kake was designed by Dave Rowland and released by Schizotype. Kake contains 1 style. p > Kake's upper case letters are influenced by a hand-painted indication outside a temple in Ubud, Bali. The rest of the font is made to fit the design. The hand-made aesthetic is increased by the application of contextual alternates, which automatically swap glyphs to alternate kinds to prevent the monotony of repeating letters. The quantity of variations for each glyph depends on letter frequency in English; there are more a's and e's than q's and j's. Even with just two variations of some glyphs, the programs makes sure that no 2 matching glyphs are ever beside eachother, and for the most part they will rarely be even 2 letters apart. This all makes for type that looks like it isn't type. The glyphs bounce and discreetly alter weight with willful abandon.

Some of the letters on that initial indication are somewhat wacky. If you're not a fan you can engage stylistic alternates or stylistic sets to change the C, G, S, Y, c, s and y glyphs to a less idiosyncratic form. These variations still have variations themselves, so with contextual alternates on, they will look as random as all the rest.

Case sensitive forms and automated portions are consisted of, as are 98 accessories, varying from the helpful to the (let's just say) mystical. These can be accessed from the glyph scheme. I know you have actually probably never recognized you require an anchor, a fuel pump, skull and crossbones and chess signs in the very same font before, but that does not mean you do not!

Kake is complete on display screen typography. It's legible for little blocks of copy however don't go setting essays in it. Unless you truly desire to ... in which case, go all out.
