In Use: Klavika in South Africa

Durban stadium seating

Durban, South Africa’s busiest port city, constructed the magnificent Moses Mabhida Stadium which allowed them to be a host stadium for the 2010 FIFA World Cup games. Büro für Gestaltung designed the wayfinding and identity and covered the stadium from the seats to the murals with our Klavika. When the games were over, Jonathan Jackson of WeShouldDoItAll was kind enough to send along images of the stadium with a particular emphasis on the use of Klavika. This booklet was created to showcase his photographs, the stadium and our typeface.

New Release: Anchor

Anchor is our new four-weight family of round display gothics designed for maneuvering in especially cramped quarters. With weights ranging from Medium to Black, Anchor promises plump over-indulgence in the heavy weights and relatively sober display capabilities in the lighter weights. Of note are Anchor’s inflated arrows that can be seen throughout the specimens on this site. Available exclusively at the Process Type Foundry.

See the Anchor typeface family and learn all the details about our latest release.
