Fontsmith: FS Blake

FS Blake is a new typeface by Fontsmith designer Emanuela Conidi. Pictured above is FS Blake Heavy, which I find very interesting.

“FS Blake is a striking type. Finely tuned in his mechanical and organic shapes he offers a harmonious mix of generous curves and cursive spikes. Compact and solid, the punchy heavy weight is emphatic in display sizes whilst the lighter weights offer a sensitive modern elegance, sympathetic to small text setting. Within each weight, Blake reveals a different aspect of his character to support a variety of applications. A spiky, lively and versatile, contrasted font family.”
