As a graphic designer, I’ve spent the last 20 years working with the iconic sans-serif fonts of the twentieth century — Helvetica, Univers, Futura, Avant Garde etc.
When I started designing typefaces in earnest, although any attempt to emulate the classics is a considerable task, I couldn’t resist having a go myself at a well balanced, contemporary sans-serif.
Talbot Type Kamerik is a geometric sans-serif in two variations. Kamerik 105 has a single storey a and more modern, geometric g, while Kamerik 205 has an older style a and g, along with a few other variations — notably capital M and a couple of the numerals.
This, and indeed all of the text type on this website is set in Kamerik 205 Book.
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 Kaleko is similar but with oblique terminals, 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.
