The Klavika series, designed by Eric Olson, consists of three typefaces published by the Process Type Foundry. The original design, Klavika, debuted in 2004 and was expanded four years later with the release of Klavika Condensed. In 2012, Klavika Display introduced four new weights in two widths. All in, the series has 24 styles and covers a wide range of uses providing an undoubtably modern tone for print and screens.
A full-featured, do-it-all sans serif for the needs of the 21st-century. In attempt to make something versatile and modern, the design is unadorned and infinitely flexible. To achieve this, Klavika is a typographic hybrid – crossing humanist and geometric influences with allegiances to neither.
Klavika Condensed is a narrow companion that doesn’t sacrifice the feel and functionality of the original. The near vertical terminations, straight sides, dynamic italic, and range of weights from Klavika, are right at home in this width.
From extra stuffed to skeletal thin, Klavika Display is intended for really large sizes. The four weights — and two widths — bookend the rest of the series, making it a headline companion but also a set of boastful display fonts in their own right.
Klavika has true Small Caps and OpenType All Small Caps, featuring slightly wider characters for better legibility and added punch.
Fit for contemporary communication, Klavika contains multiple numeral styles: Lining, Old Style, Small Caps and a Tabular version for each.
The three typefaces in the series have OpenType Stylistic Alternates for the ampersand and single-story lowercase g.
Klavika includes pre-built fractions along with ordinals, superscripts, and mathematical symbols.
All of the typefaces have sets of arrows, found as OpenType Ornaments, and Klavika contains many additional shapes.
Desktop: OTF (OpenType). Webfonts: WOFF & WOFF2 (Web Open Font Format) and EOT (Embedded OpenType).
