About the font

A geometric, experimental sans serif typeface. The concept behind Unite, was to bring together two basic but contrasting geometric shapes, the circle and the square. Bringing these two simple forms and creating an entire typeface was difficult, but the typeface is not only legible, it should ‘unite’ with your design. After going through a phase of using rounded corners in many designs, I feel that I have moved away from this in favour of a cleaner, sharp edged corner. Unite was developed to work with both design styles. The font has a uniform stroke, which helps creates balance, and is perfect for screen media.

OpenType features include

  1. Weights 1 weight containing 595 characters
