Antumbra is a modern-geometric display typeface with variable widths between many of its’ letters. Variability is prevalent in condensed forms of capital letters like “B” and “G.” The goal was to create rigid and proportional letterforms that, with variable changes in width, can look condensed and is easy to read without stop-gaps of distraction.
Antumbra is inspired by typefaces such as, Century Gothic Pro, ITC Avant Garde, and PT Futura; a thin display to pair with a weighty counterpart. Antumbra, as a project, was designed over four months. It started in late 2020 and finished in early 2021. Antumbra serves its purpose as a thin display type.
