• Helsinki
    A typeface by Ludwig Übele
  • Helsinki is derived from the Finnish traffic sign type. It comes in seven weights, including an ultra thin and ultra fat display version.
  • Finnish traffic signs.
  • Me at the Arctic Circle in northern Finland.
  • The connection of shoulder and stem is usually either smooth (left) or angular (middle). On one of the (weather-beaten) traffic signs it looked like a combination of both. I liked this feature and even exaggerated it (right).
