Balbum is a typeface that combines heavy and fast strokes, giving the design a sense of movement and play. Its chunky strokes retain a subtle modulation and slant, while features like short sharp terminals reinforce a clear directional flow.
The counter treatment is inspired by the idea of folding and curling something semi-malleable and chubby – a bit like balloon folding but with sharp things very close by.
The typeface is designed for impactful presence on the page while maintaining an overall soft character in its texture and creates a robust playful rhythm across full lines of text, not just short titles.
