Lackonic is a display stencil typeface with humanist proportions and medium weight, inspired by tubular shapes. It was primarily designed for Primavera’s Version 9 range of products, being used to set the products name within the suite.
It all started with the product symbol — 9 — which corresponds to the suite version. So why not drawing all other characters, based upon these shapes? That would give a higher sense of unity and of consistency among the different products in the suite.
That is how Lackonic was born.
