Koi is similar, in principle, to Kelso in that each of the characters is represented by a single continuous line. The result is something of a hybrid, sitting somewhere between an outline and an inline style, and with an asymmetrical look — something quite rare in a typeface.
Like Kelso, some will claim it looks like a typeface designed by a graphic designer, so I’m hoping it will appeal to other graphic designers.
Many of the characters look like ready made logotypes. Further customisation is easily achieved by extending the end strokes of characters, possibly aligning them and joining them to others to create bespoke arrangements.
There was a fashion for outline, inline and tri-line styles in the 1970s. As a graphic designer, their strong graphic properties appeal to me, so I’m all in favour of a revival.
