Eqil is a multiscript type family for extensive texts. It is conceived as a typographic system wise enough to respond to complex publishing challenges. It consists of a range of styles and its quiet personality transforms and gets louder as the intended sizes increase.

Eqil identifies as an elegant contemporary take on transitional types. It does not intend to be a showstopper, instead it aspires to be the lever that silently elevates the content. The combination of straights and curves creates a dynamic yet fluid character and the relatively low contrast gives it a slightly dark and warm texture on the page. The four scripts, Latin, Arabic, Cyrillic, and Greek, were designed to work harmoniously together without compromising each script’s historical and individual characteristics.
