About Ambiguity

Ambiguity was inspired by the idea that utopia is within reach if we embrace ambiguity and fluidity as states of perfection. Nix challenged his own notions of traditional proportions, contemplating the sources and consciously contradicting them. The output is Ambiguity, a typeface with five “states” of letterforms, providing a diverse palette of fonts for designers and brands wanting to both challenge and express their typographic voice.
