Ek is a unicode compliant, contemporary, multi-script type family available for print and digital use. Speaking to PrintWeek India, Sarang Kulkarni, founder and type designer at Ek Type, said, "The aim was to build one harmonious family across all Indian scripts without letting the visual features of one script dominate the other."

Ek is available for Devnagari, Gujrati and Latin and will soon be ready for all the Indian languages. “The fonts are designed  by giving adequate importance to script grammar and script tradition. We produce standardised and compatible fonts in multiple weights, supporting all platforms for print and screen,” added Kulkarni. These fonts will be available for purchase online on the company's website: www.ektype.in.

Ek Type comprises of experienced type designers, researchers and academicians. Apart from developing and selling fonts, Ek Type will create documentation and awareness about Indian typography. 

In addition to this, it will mentor upcoming type designers by engaging with them in the process of design development and subsequently provide them with a platform to showcase their work.
