BP&O Collections — Klim Fonts

Selected by Richard Baird & Klim

A continually updated collection of brand identity and packaging design projects that feature fonts created by New Zealand’s The Klim Type Foundry. Klim creates both custom fonts for clients and retail fonts for designers, and is a firm favourite of BP&O. The foundry’s fonts frequently feature on the site, with DomaineFounders Grotesk and Calibre being regulars. These, as with all of Klim’s fonts, stand out for the quality of their build, historical context and character, and blend a modern usefulness and technical rigour with an evident workmanship.

This post was kindly sponsored by Klim, who will also be sponsoring BP&O’s weekly newsletter. Please do take a second to have a look through Klim’s catalogue, and spend some time reading through the origins, inspirations and design of each of their fonts. These are insightful and well-written, and add a real value to the Klim site. BP&O regularly revisits these prior to writing up reviews.
