Raw Elegance

Cargo is a headline typeface characterized by curved stencil cuts, a feature which creates very graphic letter combinations. Loosely inspired by the logo of the stencil machines company Marsh, the first version of Cargo was originally designed for the visual identity of the eponymous music club of the 2002 Swiss National Exhibition. Since its release in 2003, Cargo has continuously appealed to designers across the globe for its unique ability to create iconic design pieces.

Cargo was featured in the exhibitions ‘Fresh Types’ at the Museum of Design Zürich in 2004, and ‘Types We Can Make’ at the MIT Museum in Boston in 2010.
