Akimoto: A Yummy Fat Slab Display Typeface
I’m so glad that Finnish based designer Ossi Gustafsson emailed me about his typeface Akimoto. I’m all about the fat slab typefaces and this is my new favorite. Thin spearheads jut into the characters and define the negative spaces. This makes for a nice contrast against the thick slabs. I gave it a test run and it looks great. Akimoto comes in three flavors and is available for purchase at Myfonts.com.
