Honesty is sans serif font with flared stems. As such, it belongs to the incise genre which is historically inspired by the roman civilisation and letters carved in granite or marble. One of the major examples of it is the Trajan’s Column in Rome which inspired a font called Trajan, designed by Carol Twombly in 1989.
Honesty is also inspired by more brutal font such as the Albertus, designed in 1938 by Berthed Wolpe, and its shape is highly influenced by the work of the hammer. Despite this brutality and urgency due to the carving technique, the design of Honesty brings softness to it thanks to its low contrast and smooth curves. Honesty’s design includes 16 styles, from thin to black in roman and italic.
