Distinctive, hip, octagonal and somewhat playful: a fitting description for Kairos, the new typeface from Monotype designer Terrance Weinzierl. The slab serif was derived and re-interpreted from the so-called “Grecian fonts” of the 19th century, which were writings in the style of wood carving.
With a total 51 styles, Kairos offers a splendid array of options, including matching italics and small caps. It is also available as a web font. This makes the flexible Kairos suitable for many applications and projects.
