About Asfalt

About this typeface


Asfalt’s elongated, tightly-packed forms draw from the design of painted road letters, which are stretched to compensate for the low perspective of an approaching car. From a driver’s seat, words like “STOP” and “GO” read perfectly compact.

A stencilled version of road lettering from Niggli’s mid-century Lettera series became the starting point for our design, plus a design manual for road surface signage found by Fabian in thrift store in Rio de Janeiro.

Asfalt comes in Compressed, Condensed, Normal, Extended, and Expanded widths stretching elegantly across Light, Regular, Medium, and Bold weights.
