As architecturally geometric as DIN can be, as latinized as drawing can be, Cogito is a compatible typeface family commissioned by Atelier Malte Martin both for its in-house projects and for its studio work.
The commission is quite unusual since design studios are more used to request an exclusive design for them or for their client. Here, the goal is to serve as a workhorse for all kind of work.
The initial purpose of the commission was to replace DIN, extensively used by the atelier, yet it revealed itself to be a latinized sans living at the border of geometry. Cogito has round but stiff shapes and a large x-height, making it suitable for body and display copy.
Cogito has a fraternal twin: Gemeli.
