KOMMUNE DISPLAY & STENCIL

Kom­mune is a dis­play font inspired by the ver­nacu­lar shop- and pro­mo­tion let­ter­ings of Burk­ina Faso. Ori­gin­ally designed as a sten­cil typeface for the solo show and accom­pa­ny­ing cata­logue of Burk­ina Faso born Archi­tect Fran­cis Kéré (fam­ous for his Laongo Opera Vil­lage and com­mun­al school build­ings) at the Architek­tur­mu­seum der TUM, Pinakothek der Mod­erne in Munich. It is now also avail­able in a new ver­sion as a nor­mal, non sten­cil typeface.

Kom­mune comes in three ver­sions:
Basic (8 weights), Dis­play & Sten­cil (cap­it­als only—providing two styles, 4 weights each).
It is a reverse-con­trast typeface. In its’ light­er weights it com­bines eleg­ant hair­lines with by Bru­tal­ism inspired round corners and heavy hori­zont­als.
