The Dutch word “leuk’ translates loosely to English as pleasant, jolly, funny, witty, clever, nice, sweet, kind, nice, amusing, entertaining, and funny.
Leuk, the font, is a small, highly legible font with a witty, sociable personality that engages it’s readers.
My challenge in designing Leuk was to find a unique feature to set apart the font without losing the fundamentals of type design. In the process of doing so, I created a virtual font “smile and wink” in the “o” upper and lowercase with integrated stencil-connecting strokes within the “a,e, k, z, o, ÃŸ” to reveal Leuk‘s calligraphic roots.
Legible and friendly, Leuk is designed for use in advertising, brochures, promotion, book cover design, packaging, and the like.
