Veronika Burian and José Scaglione for TypeTogether

TypeTogether duo Vik Burian and José Scalione push the humanist sans model in a slightly grotesk direction with Ebony, giving a result that's strong, confident, memorable and highly readable. The family ranges from a spare, low contrast Thin weight to a more mannered, wide-set Ultra Black with carefully tuned text weights in between.
