A modern humanist sans serif typeface.

Project Overview

Enoki is an elegant, modern, and friendly humanist sans serif typeface. Inspired by forms of mushroom and contemporary type designs that blur the lines between sans serif and serifs, enoki aim to become another body copy choice that could be used to layout long and comfortable read.


My goal is to create a sans serif typeface borrowing the elegant and humanist characteristics from serif typefaces. I was inspired by mushrooms' gills to incorporate lots of ink traps, curved strokes, and rounded edges in Enoki. During the process, I look up to the designs of Kontrapunkt Miki, Aperçu, and ED Garamond as my teachers and guiding stars.
