Suhmo is a Slab Serif typeface with rounded Serifs. The proportions are inspired by the American Typewriter and Courier – at the same time many details were derived by neon tubes the inscriptions which one finds on restaurants from the 60s and 70s.
The typeface has very short ascenders and descenders and a generous x-height by which it is suited for the use in editorial-designs. It combines simplicity and functionality with playfulness and has many details like loops and swings and a slight stroke-contrast.
The characters work in a bigger display use just as in longer text passages. Consequently the details are drawn in a way, that they develop in smaller point dimensions nobody to big own way of life, in the enlargement, however, clear accents place.
FF Suhmo consists of 4 weights: Light, Regular, Bold and Black. The weights are designed that Light can be combined with Bold and Regular with Black.
Every Font has an extensive character with a lot of special characters, different figure types, to SmallCaps and extensive ligatures. The Italics are lighter than the upright and have a relatively light angle. The forms are strongly influenced by the writting process.
