Axiom is a curious grotesque. It’s horizontal strokes and curves are marginally lighter than the verticals. Diagonal rising strokes, on the other hand, are noticeably leaner. That makes the figures dynamic and space-saving and lends this highly usable sans-serif a very distinctive character. Axiom is drawn differently for small and larger sizes; it is available in 4 weights, and comes with an equally charming italic.
