Piek is an approachable contemporary slab-serif typeface, which genuinely delivers text. Its eccentric serifs are inspired by the ace of spades symbols, found in a deck of playing cards.
Piek was initiated and developed by Philipp Herrmann in 2005. At the time, Herrmann felt that there was a lack of modern-slab typefaces and decided to start a type design project focusing on that genre. Piek is characterized by a very low-stroke contrast and by its bracketed and rectangular serifs, which read as a surprising design element. The typeface demonstrates an impressive legibility which is maintained at small point sizes. The Piek family will delight any graphic designer searching for an inviting and accessible typeface with quirky details.
