Clip by Urtd

urtd's picture

Clip is a display typeface inspired by the shape of a paperclip, but it’s not designed with the usual minimalistic modular approach. Instead, Clip mimics the construction, proportions and contrast of classic bold text typefaces and has one unique characteristic: each of its characters is drawn with only one single line.

Clip family consists of 3 fonts, Hair, Light and Regular, each with 745 glyphs (supporting more than 70 latin based languages), 4 stylistic sets and advanced OpenType features. When Stylistic set 1 is activated, the overlapping loops contract, giving the text a whole new character. Moreover, every uppercase character is also available in an ornamental swash variant, which means most of the capitals have four different versions.

Very clever!
I love this sort of creative implementation of OpenType features.

fantastic! won't you draw cyrillics, Ondrej?

@andrij: i just tried to sketch some letters and it seems it could work. not sure about the lowercase though... i'm busy with some other projects now, but i would definitely like to try it later. when the day comes, would you be interested to give some feedback? i really haven't done any cyrillic yet, you know.

Strange, still does not work for me. No connection.

The site works just fine for me.

it seems that few internet service providers have the ip of my servers blocked in their settings for some reason, so if you can't access my site, please try it from some other place, a phone or something like that. thanks! sorry about that guys.
