The origin of Labil Grotesk goes back to a typeface done as a master’s thesis project nominated for Czech National Award for Student Design 2016. Encouraged by the reception, Christian Jánský set out to remaster the whole family—leaving the concept intact. After 3 years of development, it is finally available in 8 weights (Hairline–Black) and 2 subfamilies, with a myriad of alternates conveniently categorised into 8 stylistic sets.
What started out as a first foray into typeface design evolved into a comprehensive sans-serif family of 32 multilingual fonts–supporting Latin Extended-A, i.e. Western European, Central European & Southeastern European languages–plus a wealth of contextual alternates, bonus glyphs and case-sensitive forms easily accessible via OpenType.
