“Keen” font family was designed collaboratively with Keen Footwear, North & Gus Nicklos Studio.

At it’s base level, Keen’s form is based off Trade Gothic, Knockout and Akzidenz Grotesque.

The team at North, which is Keen’s Agency of record, then chalked my designs.

Using two computers, 5 programs and over twenty steps per glyph, I revectorized the chalked letters.

I will add more commentary and imagery to this post when I get in use shots from Keen.
