Trigot is a modular typeface. Every form and every character is constructed from the basic geometric form of the triangle. The Despite the simple construction trigot resembles strongly a gothic blackletter font. The letters are inspired by the ductus and forms of medieval typefaces and have a similar complex expression.
The main singularity of Trigot lies in the strong contrast between clear geometry and the complex expression of a blackletter typeface. The name “Trigot” hints the gothic influence and the triangular modules. Trigot is a modern display font, it can be used for posters, striking visuals and titles but also for longer phrases and quotes.
The basic idea came in a workshop on pixel based fonts during the studies in 2007. After his graduation Michael Hübner worked continously on the typeface and is now about to publish it.
