Somatype Skwosh was born out of a desire to ignore traditional rules for condensed character forms in favour of contrasting vertical and horizontal thicknesses and the interesting shapes produced by re-scaling along only one axis.

Somatype Bold was the starting point for the initial weight. Two subsequent styles, Heavy & XBold, were added later, fleshing out the family to 3 fonts.
