Make it the best. Then better.
Klim Type Foundry is one of the finest in the world. Klim came to Springload looking not to replicate other type sites, but to blow them out of the internet. The overriding mission: Make it the best. Then better.
All the typefaces on Klim are editable in the browser, so you can line up your letters and try before you buy; to that end, we made sure the type looked amazeballs. The interface needed to be simple and distraction free. No fluff. Nothing but type. Colours? Any colour, so long as it’s black.
I am feeling so fucking great right now. Like a kid who has a huge secret to tell on Christmas Eve! Go live tomorrow! I won't be able to sleep!

Attention designers – buy fonts here
The target audience consisted mostly of font-buying designers, so we kept that in mind 100% of the time. We wanted to increase the time people spent trying fonts, and to make it super easy for them to make a purchase.
Sharing the typographic love
Klim wanted to educate people about how to use type well. Anyone can mock up their own custom type specimens and share them with others. Typographic newbies never knew letters could be so intensely lovely.
Web fonts are dynamically loaded and obfuscated to hinder people downloading them. We’ve also set up extensive caching to handle spikes in traffic, and lazy loading of large assets.
