Zico Slab Hebrew

Design Concept

Zico is a large typeface family inspired by sports aesthetics, available in a beefy Slab-Serif version and a corresponding Display version, slightly square-ish humanist Sans, and a narrower Sans Condensed. Zico is compemented by the Hebrew version of Slab, Sans, and Display. Unlike the original Zico Slab, which is inspired by the letterforms typically used in sport jerseys, Zico Sans is a versatile Sans Serif family with wider applications in mind. By dropping the robust serifs, Zico becomes a natural high-performance typeface with low contrast and plenty of optical compensations that make even the darkest weights work at small sizes. Since the basic proportions are rather wide, Zico Sans also includes a Condensed version, for situations where space-saving typography is required. Combined, they offer complete typographic palette for the most demanding designers. Read more about development of Zico▸
