    Lars is a sans serif created from parameters, which we at Bold-Decisions, prefer to see in a typeface – impartial and versatile. Created from a specific doctrine and worked down to what we perceive as neutral. This sans serif family covers a wide range of languages, has great legibility and a universal appeal.

    Sverre is a stencil face, loosely drawn up from the ‘Combination Stencil Sheet’ by Sverre Rian, a Norwegian immigrant, who made it in Darlington, Wisconsin, circa 1920. The digitisation of this typeface continues as an exercise in repeating letter shapes across scripts.

    gc16 is a monospaced serif typeface — which originates from an undated ‘plate’, by Percy Smith. After the initial revival was done, gc16 was put on the bottom of the to-do list, and only recently finalised. We saw that there was something about mixing these highly organic traits, with something as ‘digital’ and unusual as a monospacing. gc16 features 4 stylistic sets, and a slashed zero.

    Clip is a modular typeface, revived by Asger Behncke Jacobsen in 2015, and completed with Mads Wildgaard in 2017. It’s a highly distinctive headline typeface, to the point where it almost seems designed with just one specific application in mind. Covering a majority of the european languages, it comes in the standard file formats, and is available on request.
