KRSNA + BRRR

posted by Hannah Dawson September 29, 2017

Radical new typefaces KRSNA and BRRR are now available as part of the Swiss Typefaces Lab Collection and join the popular SangBleu King, Euclid Stencil and Riviera. These new fonts are just as experimental as their lab predecessors and are fully functional. Their limitation to a single style allows Swiss Typefaces to present new typographic ideas faster and more effectively, as well as allowing you to work with them in your designs right away.

KRSNA is an experimental typeface started out as a custom version of NewParis Skyline, made for two vinyl record sleeves by Geneva-based musician Grace Core. This typeface abandons the convention of a continuous baseline and introduces a three-storey space where the letters can sit at the top, centre or bottom, with the remaining space filled by bars and spikes. This creates patterns with a logo-like quality when words are created.

BRRR is a playful wide Grotesk with a great deal of disruptive details. It was initially created to design a poster series for Swiss artist Simon Paccaud.

For those of you who have not previously come across The Lab, it acts as a Research and Development department of cutting edge type design company, Swiss Typefaces. They are continuously adding to their range of innovative products and The Lab provides a space for them to showcase their work in progress, plus it gives us a glimpse of what’s to come in the future of Swiss Typefaces font collections.
