KarloDesigner: Sofie Beier
Publisher: The Northern Block
Designed by Sofie Beier, Karlo is a sans serif, piece serif and display serif font style household. This typeface has twenty-two styles and was released by The Northern Block.

Karlo is a very family of numerous branches, stemming in the exact same lightweight skeleton. The lightweights are based on a pen of an even stroke-width.


Inspired by the works of calligrapher Edward Johnston, the family carries on in 2 directions in the much heavier weights. Johnston demonstrated that the broad nib pen can produce different composing styles. Following this, one heavy weight has a humanistic low stroke contrast (Karlo Serif Strong and Karlo Sans Bold), and another has a high stroke contrast of vertical axis with referrals to the 19th century jobbing typefaces (Karlo Open). The latter is influenced by Johnston's demonstration of the broad nib pen, where he recommended attaching two pencils together. With each pencil representing an edge of the pen, it ends up being more evident how the pen operates in writing.


The friendly casual look makes Karlo Sans and Karlo Serif functional for both running text and for screen sizes. Karlo Open, on the other hand, is solely designed for display screen function revealing few words at a time.


In Denmark, a person called Karlo would normally be an old fellow with a slick hairstyle that makes an effort with his appearance. He is a handyman who can do a little bit of this and that when required. He is a happy go fortunate type of guy that takes one day at a time. To me, the typeface household has some of the very same qualities.
