Dirk is a heavy slab serif meant for large, attention grabbing display use. Dirk’s design lives somewhere between a Clarendon wood type style and a more modern geometric slab serif. It features the bracketed serifs, large x-height, and short ascenders/descenders of a Clarendon design, but drawn with the precision curves and smooth, sturdy structure of a geometric slab. The result retains the charm of wood type, but sheds a lot of the over-familiarity of a digital revival.
Dirk is available in both a clean, Black weight as well as a Stencil version. Each styles feature a full Western, Central, and South Eastern European character set.
