The road to making a typeface is often forked, where two clear paths lead to two different results. Mikro is that diverging path. Where Trim is cut from a grotesque, Mikro takes on the geometric sans. Where Trim places letters squarely in a pixel-grid, Mikro steps out of bounds when seen fit.
Though not unique to us, Futura has always been fundamental in the Swedish vernacular — it plays well into our collective self-image. When Design Sweden reached out in search of a typeface representative of both established and contemporary styles, we took the opportunity revisit that parallel path.
