Gopher Font

Gopher is a reverse contrast, geometric sans serif typeface with Normal Text and Display families. The 48 included fonts in the complete family range from hairline to heavy, with italics. A variation in the amount of contrast distinguishes the three separate families while allowing them to work in harmony together. A typical contrast for typefaces is vertical (sides and stems are thicker, and the horizontal tops and bottoms are thinner). However, Gopher provides a unique look to the geometric sans genre by switching that contrast so the sides are thinner and tops and bottoms thicker. This approach was the most tricky to design in characters with diagonal strokes, like v and k, but it also yielded exciting results.
