About the font

About the font Kaleko 205

Kaleko is closely related to both Talbot Type Kamerik and Talbot Type Kessel, they're all built on the same chassis, so to speak, but with significant stylistic differences.

Kaleko could be described as a Gill Sans inspired, geometric sans-serif reinterpreted for the twenty first century.

It comes in two variations, each of five weights. Kaleko 105 displays a more modern single-storey a and g, while Kaleko 205 has the traditional two-storey varieties of both; several of the numerals also vary.

I’ve kept the ascenders and descenders short, in order to create a relatively more prominent x-height. I think this serves to emphasise the smooth geometry of the font, more apparent in the circular forms of the lower case characters. Also, allocating more space to the x-height and reducing the space for ascenders and descenders, seems to enhance legibility at text sizes.

Talbot Type Kamerik is similar but with square cut terminals, in the style of Helvetica, while Talbot Type Kessel offers terminals that rise to a sharp point, in the Deco style; Talbot Type Kettering offers a slab-serif variation, again built on the same chassis.
