Hennes och Mauritz
Svenska’s vertical asymmetry, driven by a low centre of gravity, distinguishes it from the mundane & commonplace. The font has a distinctive flair, combining closed letter-forms and tight spacing to betray the sort of independent swagger you’d expect from your typical Swedish speaker.
- Font Details
- Sans-serif with even stroke thickness. Short descenders constrast with tall ascenders, which reach well above the caps-height. A large x-height also contrasts with a low vertical center. The font thus pairs rational letterforms with unexpected proportions. Tight letter spacing.
