A perfect blend of pointy paws in a coat of fur, Baloo has a subtle tinge of playfulness and all the bare necessities of type. This heavy spurless design has already garnered praise for its distinctive jovial nature and its multi script design. But until now, its size has kept it from mingling with long bodies of text.
Enter: The all new Baloo!
Baloo now comes in 5 distinct weights ranging from the light footed Book to the affable Heavy. The lighter weights retain Baloo's characteristic bounce, but they do so slightly, infusing life into each word. This allows Baloo to freely fraternise with texts of all Sizes and temperaments – be it short bursts or copious reams, demanding headlines or whispering bylines.
Just like the heavier weight, the lighter generation of Baloos speak many tongues. Each weight has been designed in 11 scripts including Devanagari, Gurmukhi, Urdu, Bengali, Odia, Gujarati, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil and Latin.
Carefree yet confident, sprightly yet versatile, the renewed family of Baloo promises to bring warmth to every project.
Most of the fonts in the Baloo family are libre licensed.
