The initial idea of Lamb was to design a grid based typeface that does not have any counters. All characters are built with monolinear strokes that stay open. Only vertical and horizontal lines as well as quarter segments of circles are used. The increase of weight is progressing to all sides from the center of each stroke while the metrics are kept the same in all fonts. The whole family consists of 63 fonts iterating all possible combinations of six basic weights. Its unusual and playful letterform make Lamb a good choice for headlines or logotypes.
