Swift and Tondo

Today we pair Gerard Unger’s Swift with Veronika Burian’s Tondo.

A news face, Swift’s rigid forms set economically with a tone that’s neither too harsh nor too supple. Tondo is a clear, simply structured grotesk with modestly squared curves and rounded terminals. Among its weights is a slightly condensed Signage variant. Together, the two contribute to a texture that can oscillate between taut and loose, sparkling with detail, and flat, plain and clean.

Should you need it, Swift 2.0 from Paratype has full Cyrillic support. And Tondo Corporate supports both Cyrillic and Greek.
