Klavika, by Eric Olson of Process Type Foundry, was released in 2004. In the time since, Klavika has become one of the past decade’s most popular typefaces. It has been a favorite of NBC and its sister stations in on-air promotions, and is in heavy use by ABC Sports/ESPN, Comcast Xfinity, General Motors, and a great number of other companies, large and small. Perhaps Klavika is most noticeable as the basis for the Facebook logo.
Process Type Foundry describes Klavika as an “unadorned, modern and infinitely flexible” typeface for the 21st century. While the Web 2.0 era introduced softer, rounded sans serifs as the norm, Klavika carries an air of edgy modernity. Its high x-height and open letterforms lend it excellent legibility at smaller sizes, and it has the distinctiveness to make for eye-catching headlines.
Klavika supports 113 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
