Karletto is an experimental project that reflects on the 'topography' of typography: on what letters are and what makes them legible (or illegible).


A variable 'unicase' typeface with four axes:

Top

-> controls the overhang of the curves at the top of the glyphs

Bottom

-> controls the overhang of the curves at the bottom of the glyphs

Left

-> controls the elongation of the left glyphs

Right

-> controls the elongation of the letters on the right.


The typeface's name was inspired by 'Darling the Prince of Monsters', which, like our typeface, was elongated and playfully monstrous.
