HongKong is a large, futuristic-style sans serif family. The letters have straight-sides – even ‘e’ and ‘o’, for example – and the whole typeface has a rather minimalistic design. Many typical sans serif features have been reduced somewhat. Quite a few lowercase letters are spurless. The ‘a’ still has a double-storey structure, but it is without the final spur on its bottom right. Other features of the fonts include a rounded-top ‘A’ and a single-story ‘g’. HongKong includes 14 fonts. These are seven different weights, each with a companion italic. The italics are obliques. Like the upright fonts, all of their letterforms are drawn with mono-linear strokes. Each font includes alternate, even more-rounded versions of the letters ‘M’, ‘N’, ‘V’, ‘W’, ‘X’, ‘Y’, ‘Z’, ‘v’, ‘w’, ‘x’, ‘y’, and ‘z’ … plus all of the diacritic characters based on these. HongKong’s lowercase letters have a very tall x-height, and their ascenders rise above caps just a little bit. The family’s lighter weights feel nice and loose in text, while the heavier weights are spaced more tightly. HongKong is a great font for the tech industry, but could also be put to good use to advertise music or art.
