Designed by Shiva Nallaperumal, Khang is a sans serif font family. This typeface has six styles and was published by Indian Type Foundry.
Khang is a sans serif family that is part of Shiva Nalleperumal’s investigations into monolinearity in type design. In this typeface, he fuses a monolinear sans’s structure with a kind of stroke modulation more common to broad-nib calligraphy.
The Khang family has six weights that range from Extra Light to Bold; even in the Extralight weight, the design’s stroke contrast is maintained.
Khang is suitable both for long, comfortable reading and interesting display use. Its lowercase letters have a tall x-height, most strokes end with either horizontal or vertical lines, and all letters have open counter forms.
K hang offers a few OpenType features that may prove helpful for Corporate Identity and Editorial designers: each font includes alternate single-storey “a” and “g” forms. These are accessible via a stylistic set in InDesign or in CSS, or as via the stylistic alternates feature in Illustrator. Khang also includes 15 f-ligatures, plus a “tt” ligature.
