About the Typeface
Bikini is a playful display font that is suitable for word marks such as logos, name tags or magazine headlines as well as for short sentences, e.g. headlines and quotations. Curved strokes and expressive letterforms give the typeface a carefree, psychedelic look. Bikini is perfect for children's themes, leisure and recreation, and anything fun and exciting.
Bikini offers designers a wide range of possibilities to create a lively and sophisticated typography. The font contains swashes and Roman capitals as well as two alternates for each lowercase letter for infinite combinations. A set of more than 60 ligatures is also included.
Bikini gets its charm from the mixture of constructivist and handmade origin concepts. Although some of the letters have very expressive and extravagant details, the design is strictly based on a matrix of circles and arcs (see drawing). Dispite its static and geometric basic elements, Bikini seems to come to live and to break the rules of the grid.
