Fort is a contemporary grotesk inspired by Mickel’s years of working as a graphic designer and the constant need for sans serifs with a flexible voice and durable performance. Fort features squared shoulders and counterforms in round characters, subtly redrawn slanted italics and consistent texture across all weights that make it a unique sans serif. Fort is neutral enough to take on information design, corporate identity and small text sizes but its refined details and personality will always shine through. MCKL, 2012.
