Tropikal typeface came from the curiosity of what old Philippine type would look like in today’s modern landscape. Tropikal is a modern rendition of an old style serif typeface inspired from the nineteenth-century Philippine bank notes, newspapers and packaging designs.
Tropikal’s defining quirks are its sharp edges, high contrast between thick-thin stokes and semi-tilted cross bars (eg middle of A, H or e). The typeface can span from a vintage feel to a more modern and expressive vibe. You can use the letterforms by themselves or you can add image overlays or shadows if you feel a little bit adventurous. Either way — Keep exploring!
