Klim Type Foundry has launched their new typeface Söhne with films by DIA.

“Söhne is the memory of Akzidenz-Grotesk framed through the reality of Helvetica. It is inspired by memories and impressions of ‘Standard Medium’ used in Unimark’s signage system for the NYC Subway. I’ve tried to capture a specific analogue materiality that I remember from my visits,” says Klim’s Director and Lead Type Designer, Kris Sowersby.

As a collection, Söhne (which means “sons” in German) is comprised of four families: Söhne, Söhne Schmal (Condensed), Söhne Breit (Wide) and Söhne Mono. Each has a comprehensive range of weights and styles.

To mark the release of Söhne, Klim Type Foundry teamed up with NYC and Geneva-based branding, kinetic identity and typographic research agency DIA.
