Letters from Sweden

Trim Poster Font Download

font family from Letters from Sweden, added February 7th

Trim Poster

Trim Poster is a new member in the Trim family and is designed with one purpose in mind: compact


all-capital headlines without crashing. Åkay, we know Yankees and Englishmen don’t have much of a problem with this, but in many other countries we have extra marks resting above or hanging below


some letters.


These diacritics become problematic when setting type with a tight line-height. In Sweden tabloids


often work around the problem by making custom adjustments to the diacritics for Å, Ä and Ö.


Trim Poster is our reply, and comes in six cuts. All with stylistic sets for different diacritic styles,


so you can make that headline fit exactly as you want, whether you’re a Swede or not.

Kumla Font Download

family of 1 font from Letters from Sweden, added February 1st

Kumla

Kumla Skofabrik was built 1912 in Kumla, a nice little town just south of Örebro, about 218 km from Stockholm. At that time Kumla was the place to be if you were into shoe manufacturing. There have been about 140 shoe factories in Kumla and even today there are shoes being made in Kumla but the number


of factories have been reduced to five.


On the front side of Kumla Skofabrik letters from 1920 are spelling out the name of the factory,


all in capitals. These letters have been the inspiration for our typeface, Kumla. An article describing


the work in progress is posted on our blog.


Nobody knows who drew the original letters on Kumla Skofabrik, but we dedicate this typeface


to that person who we think made a really great job.


Kumla is Letters from Sweden’s first release in the “Fabrik Suite” — a project inspired by Swedish industry, factories and harbors.
