PYLON, a typeface inspired by the South African landscape. PYLON is a display font. It can handle any kind of display challenge. It can be used on websites, print applications and packaging. Pylon can be elegant and subtle yet strong and dynamic.

The typeface was inspired by South Africa’s landscape where pylons decorate many open horizons. These structures stretch across our country like gentle iron giants. Decorating nature with geometric manmade shapes and structures. PYLON is constructed out of segments of this gigantic structures. These are further deconstructed into smaller segments and then used to construct the typeface.
