A freshly expanded typeface based on the pantograph sign engraving system.

It was initially released in 2009 as a faithful redraw of the signs that can be seen everywhere – signs informing you of impending danger, urgent warnings and specific load limits.

Now 11 years later we have developed the original single style into a family of five widths and five weights.

The Pantograph system had the option of widths rather than weights. In expanding the family, we created four new weights and four new widths.

The Regular weight is now complemented by a Light, Medium, SemiBold and Bold. And the original Condensed width is accompanied by a narrower Compressed width and wider Regular, Wide and Extended widths.

Pantograph is designed by Studio Makgill and Luke Charsley and is available exclusively via Colophon →
