About this font family
Lagos was created because of the lack of African-inspired fonts that are truly modern without being partly art-deco in origin.

The lines of the font combine the sharp angularity of African rocks and mountains with the smooth fluidity of Africa’s snake-black rivers.

Lagos contains a full 256 character set (upper and lower case, punctuation, diacritical characters, special symbols and numerals), in which all characters have been fully kerned and letter-spaced.
