Monokrom joins Typekit
Please join us in welcoming Monokrom to Typekit. Just two weeks ago, this new Norwegian foundry by Frode Helland and Sindre Bremnes opened its doors with a small catalog of thoughtfully crafted type — “high quality, original designs with a Nordic touch.” For starters, Faunus, Telefon, and Vinter are available in the Typekit library. These are for use at larger-than-body-text sizes, but are not all display faces.
Each of these Monokrom typefaces is rich in character: Vinter evokes the sweeping chill of Norwegian wintertime; Telefon, the warmth and romance of a bygone visual language; and Faunus, the lively blend of pen, ink, sunlight, and earthy, wooded landscape. The Monokrom site has a page about each design.
