About IDT Form 62

A Stencil Typeface Rooted in 1960s Swedish Design

The inspiration for IDT Form62 comes from the masthead of the 1962 issue of the Swedish design and craft magazine ”Form.” This masthead, created by typographer and designer Karl-Erik Forsberg (known for his typeface Berling), served as the foundation for a captivating typeface suitable for headlines and shorter texts.

IDT Form62 captures the essence of stencil lettering used in the logotype, emphasizing strong vertical elements. While the letter stems exhibit considerable weight, the transitions are delicately handled, resulting in distinctive word shapes that command attention.
