Calibre is a sans-serif typeface designed by renowned type designer Kris Sowersby in 2011. It was released by the New Zealand-based type foundry Klim Type Foundry. Calibre is a versatile and highly legible typeface, designed to be used in both print and digital contexts.
Calibre’s design is based on traditional grotesque models, with a few modern touches. It has a large x-height and open apertures, giving it a clean, modern look. It also has a slightly condensed structure, which makes it ideal for text-heavy layouts. The font has a neutral appearance, with a hint of warmth from the rounded terminals and a subtle contrast between thick and thin strokes.
Calibre is a highly functional font with a modern, yet timeless feel. It is versatile and highly legible, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. It is a great choice for editorial design, corporate branding, and web design, as it is easy to read and looks great in both digital and print contexts. It is also a great choice for headlines and display type, as its subtle contrast makes it stand out.
