Typographica’s Type of 2012

Florian Hardwig is in love with Axia’s ‘n’! He characterizes the arche’s zenith “refreshingly reckless”. Axia is praised for its “modernist” feel with many foreseeable applications. The accompanying Axia Stencil weights challenge analogue placements of bridges and visually play with gaps that are after all superfluous in digital type. We are simply delighted about Axia’s inclusion in Typographica’s Favorite Typefaces of 2012!
