Tweak is a type family with four very diverse members. They are designed to work together in digital environments, where the display style reveals the ability to change appearance. The text styles, Tweak Serif and Italic, with their squarish counters and sharp appearance, create a consistent rhythm and simplify reading of running text on screen. The display style is a variable font and contains two stylistically different extremes, Tweak Steady and Twisted. It is playing with the idea of contradiction and can be used for animations. With its short ascenders, descenders and compact appearance the display style allows a compact setting of lines. Tweak was released with Future Fonts in October 2018 and will be developed further.
After experimenting with lettering, calligraphy, and different materials during her studies at Bauhaus University Weimar, Katja set her focus on type design and received a masters degree from TypeMedia in The Hague. Since graduation she decided to expand her education by learning about font production, engineering and scripting during an internship at Alphabet-Type, in Berlin. Now she works as an independent type designer.
