Calibre font

The Calibre font is a neo-grotesk sans serif typeface. West Berlin street signs have inspired the font. The letterforms are elegant and straightforward. The construction of the font considers the geometric tendencies by applying the typographic principles of optical correction.

Calibre takes its rationality from Nebiolo’s Recta. That’s how it has a contemporary and crisp finish. Calibre was designed alongside Metric. The fundamental geometry of the two fonts is similar, however the letterforms differ in finish.

The font was released in 2011 by NZ based type designer Kris Sowersby. Kris Sowersby graduated from the Wanganui School of Design in 2003. After brief employment as a graphic designer, he started the Klim Type Foundry in 2005, along with engineers Noe Blanco and Chester Jenkins. 

The font is available in version 1.002;PS 001.001;hotconv 1.0.57;makeotf.lib2.0.21895. However, the font has no Cyrillic support. But it supports Latin. In addition, this font is similar to the Colfax font.
