Khang is a sans serif family that is part of Shiva Nalleperumal’s investigations into monolinearity in type design. In this typeface, he fuses a monolinear sans’s structure with a kind of stroke modulation more common to broad-nib calligraphy. The Khang family has six weights that range from Extralight to Bold; even in the Extralight weight, the design’s stroke contrast is maintained. Khang is suitable both for long, comfortable reading and interesting display use. Its lowercase letters have a tall x-height, most strokes end with either horizontal or vertical lines, and all letters have open counterforms. Khang offers a few OpenType features that may prove helpful for Corporate Identity and Editorial designers: each font includes alternate single-storey “a” and “g” forms. These are accessible via a stylistic set in InDesign or in CSS, or as via the stylistic alternates feature in Illustrator. Khang also includes 15 f-ligatures, plus a “tt” ligature.
