Denali is a text face designed with contrasts in mind. Modulation in stroke reflects a calligraphic tone, while contrast in form takes inspiration from smooth glacier flows, angular switchbacks and footed stone arches. Denali’s condensed form enables flexibility in copyfitting. Its relatively large x-height improves readability in small sizes. Stoke contrast add to its distinctiveness in larger sizes.
