Anek Multiscript Variable Font Family

Sarang Kulkarni

Anek, is an exercise in multiplicity - multiple scripts designed in multiple weights & widths. Designed primarily for large sizes & short texts, this confident & contemporary type-family is characterised by distinct visual features, robust structures and rhythmic textures. The design of each script borrows from its own typographic culture and reflects the perspectives of their designers. Yet they cohabit the page in visual harmony. Anek is a versatile addition to the typographic palette.
