Edge

Design Concept

Edge is a slab serif based on the orthogonal grid. Edge is playful despite its strict, formal constraints, building on the heritage of pioneers in graphic design, yet it is equally relevant for designers today. Because of the universal ideas behind this typeface, Edge easily absorbs ideas from the context in which it is placed. It can be both timeless and retro; it can be static and machine-like and also vibrant and evocative of sports and movement.

Styles

Edge comes in two flavours — Sans variant and the Slab, both using the same underlying grid system. Both versions are available in a range of nine weights. The thin styles of Edge include counters that break the letter shapes into separate elements, while the thicker styles work with regular rhythm and repetition of forms, built on 0°, 45° and 90° angles.

Alternative Characters

Edge includes alternative forms of letters that include diagonals, a version that strictly adgers to the grid, and one that is more losely drawn. These variations are selectable via Stylistic Set features.
