With unconventional humanistic quirks, Gardein’s letterforms cultivate a striking texture on or off the page. Built on a Roman foundation, the concave stems are adorned with flared terminals and extra weight on the x-height and baseline, creating a fresh, organic flavor for headlines, short texts, and eco-friendly brand messaging. The family includes five weights from Light to Extra Bold, and is also available as a variable font for adjusting weight with fine precision.
Gardein takes inspiration from the beautiful book cover design work of Sarah W. Whitman (1842-1904), an American stained glass artist, painter, and designer with an aesthetic influenced heavily by the Arts and Crafts Movement.
