  • “The typeface not only pays homage to Herb Lubalin’s iconic logo. It also makes it possible to communicate in a unique way across all aspects of the brand.”

    Rasmus Michaëlis, Type Designer

Typography

The bespoke typeface is an expressive and energetic sans serif geometric typeface suitable for many different purposes - whether blown up in big letters on the Osaka flagship store front, or set in small cases on a shoe box leaflet.

The one weight typeface contains more than 70-80 characters, including alternates and numbers providing possibilities for mixing up the letters and creating a unique, yet recognisable expression.

Branding

Our work on the typeface with Bruce Mau Design and ASICS Tiger was unveiled at the opening of the ASICS Tiger’s flagship store in Osaka Japan. It is a defining brand element ensuring the sporty expression inherited from Herb Lubalin’s original logotype design.
