Kapitol is a sans serif type family drawn from the memory of Chicago (1984). Kapitol expands on Chicago’s initial single weight, complementing it with more traditionally legible forms, while retaining the original unique contrast and feel. The family utilises robust geometry to create a practical and diverse set of types that can be used equally well for text and display purposes. The first drawings for Kapitol began in pure gridded geometry and were then evolved to also utilise more balanced and organic forms. Unlike its inspirational source, where necessary Kapitol discards the grid and utilises letterforms that have strong connections to the history of grotesque typefaces.
The Kapitol font is available to purchase at Formist Foundry.
