Fabrica typeface by Alvin Kwan

Research found that people read from their mobile screen more often than on paper nowadays. Through my own conducted survey and research, I created a set of typographic characteristics that guide me in designing the most legible typeface for mobile screen – Fabrica.

Fabrica is a deceptively simple sans serif typeface optimized for screen display on handheld devices. With its optimal quality and legibility, Fabrica proves to be highly efficient for small screens. Its details are drawn from the more systematic constructed Neo-Grotesques, giving it a neutral tone of voice. Above all, Fabrica's beauty is found in its functionality.

Although Fabrica was developed primarily for mobile screen, the typeface is suitable in any applications, large or small sizes.
