Nakoso is a fresh and playful sans-serif typeface based on broad-nib pen calligraphy and inspired by sign painting. Its contrast angle is visibly slanted, and influenced the choice of name (“nakoso” in slovak = slanted). Nakoso can be described as both a text and a display typeface. It consists of nine weights and each one of them is meant to be used on text or display. Light and Dark weights are supposed to be used for large inscriptions and headlines. “Neutral” weights (from Regular to Bold) are designed for small sizes.
Free version includes Nacoso Caps font. Full version contains Thin, ExtraLight, UltraLight, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, ExtraBold, Black & Italics.
The strength of Nakoso relies in its universality, both for running text and headlines. It is suited for magazines, visual identity programs, advertising text and small print. Calligraphy and sign painting features bring playfulness into the digital type. Nakoso departs from tradition and celebrates the most recent design trends of the 21st century.
Nacoso Caps is free for personal and commercial use (desktop license for print).
