Akimoto: A Yummy Fat Slab Display Typeface

akimoto

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.

I have seen this typeface before and it is sad that people waste their time stretching a typeface and adding arrows to create something “new.” To each their own but this makes me sad for the people who pay money for something like this.
