About the typography

Oswald

Designer: Vernon Adams
Oswald
is a reworking of the classic style historically represented by the 'Alternate Gothic' sans serif typefaces. The characters of Oswald have been re-drawn and reformed to better fit the pixel grid of standard digital screens. Oswald is designed to be used freely across the internet by web browsers on desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices.

Special Elite

Designer: Astigmatic
Special Elite
