About Traction
Swiss astronomer Christian Thalmann originally designed Traction. This typeface sports signature serifs, soft edges, and a fluid, organic design. If we look at it in detail, the organic letters are reminiscent of the profiles of ­off-road tires and hiking boots. In small text sizes, it is the humanistic forms that set the tone to ensure fluid legibility. Totaling 18 styles in nine weights, all fonts come with small capitals and all possible numerical variations.
