At the end of 2019 we opened the Gallery as a fresh way to show our fonts. Continuing this approach we’ve built a dedicated Explorer page for Shaker. Through the Explorer you can glide over the typeface; its shapes, words and symbols, then click to discover more. Explorer is best experienced through a desktop, laptop or larger mobile screen.
