Carnet is a new take on the classic British humanist sans, drawing inspiration from public signage faces as Gill Sans and the UK’s ubiquitous Transport medium. It also has a few unique touches, especially some grotesque influences such as the square tittles on the i and j, the numerals and the two-storey g (with a single-storey g as an alternate).
With rather wide proportions and pragmatic architecture, Carnet is a versatile face that expresses a feeling of openness and approachability. Its clarity of form makes it perfect for public signage, wayfinding and transportation uses. It performs well at text sizes (especially suitable for brochures, instructions and presenting information) and is also appropriate for corporate identity projects.
