About Telkom corporate typeface

We had the pleasure to design a corporate typeface for Telkom South-Africa with Miles Newlyn, at TextPref.
Telkom serves a large range of business and residential customers, and has all the key components of true convergence, enabling it to offer integrated voice, data, fixed, mobile, IT and data centre solutions. Telkom is a leading communications services provider in South Africa.
We based our sans-serif font on the existing Telkom logo, and we designed 3 weights with matching italic styles.
