Superheat is a sans serif family for display usage, with wide proportions that started with inspiration from humanistic sans and ended up with ever more dynamics and sporty vibes. Nonetheless, it is a balanced mix between the conventions of typeface design and the creativity of mixing the particularities of two writing systems that are different in every way: Latin and Hanzi.
The vertical endings of every curved stroke bring that energetic and lively feel to both Latin and Hanzi characters. The smooth curves add a balanced touch with the wide proportions.
Superheat has been designed in collaboration with Loris Olivier from lo-ol Type, where the Latin character set is available. The Chinese set is in progress.
