Klavika sample.svg

Klavika is a family of sans-serif fonts designed by Eric Olson and released by Process Type Foundry in 2004. It contains four weights: light, regular, medium, and bold (with corresponding italics) and variations of numerals.[1]

The family of typefaces is described as straight-sided technical sans-serifs[2] flexible for editorial and identity design.[3]

The capital G has no bar, the capital Q has a tail at the bottom, the lowercase g is double story, and the lowercase k has diagonal strokes that meet at the vertical, with a gap.



Andrew Paglinawan designed Manila Sans typeface that inspired from the Klavika typeface.[5]
