Typeface in use:
Rui Abreu’s (Fountain) balanced, modern slab serif typeface »Foral Pro«.
Foral Pro is a modern slab serif, organic and balanced, with harmonized proportions and polished forms. It is a eight-weight typeface, ranging from Light to Extra Bold with matching italics. It come with Small Caps and a wide range of OpenType features, allowing extensive and versatile use.
Corey Holms’ geometric, monoline, sans-serif typeface »Area«.
Area hearkens back to the disco era, reminiscent of nightclub and record advertising.
The rounded simple forms are updated with the implementation of negative kerning, which gives the typeface its unique look and modern feel. It is enhanced by the addition of over 50 ligatures that refine the final type treatment even further.
Danila Orlovsky’s (ParaType) fashionable, geometric Didone »Circus Didot«.
Circus Didot typeface presents a rework of a typical neoclassical serif type in a constructivist style. Analyzing the shapes of characters author placed basic geometric figures — triangles, rectangles, circles… above the contours of letters.
Resulting constructions staying recognizable letters at the same time bore a resemblance to pictures of Russian avant-garde artists from 20th century. This discovery has brought an idea to design a typeface where the tendency of a modern serif type to rationalism and geometry is realized in maximum possible extent. The prototypes for the project were taken from the works of Didot, lettering experiments of Russian constructivists and art deco artworks.
The technique of juggling with shapes and overall grotesque approach to the design explains the selection of the name for the font.
