Commonly, the shapes of the hand-drawn Italic are way more dynamic and harmonic than the upright version. So why not to start with the design of the Italic weight first and thereby define the leading characteristics of the upright? So did Anton Studer with the design of Rekja.
Rekja is a transitional typeface with a round and dynamic character which has strong edges and corners. Rekja is a literal typeface and is perfectly suited for bodytext application. Furthermore, the typeface is highly legible at small sizes. The typeface’s aim is to underpin legibility and uniquely serve the visualization of human language. Rekja means ‘tracking’ in Icelandic.
