JS-SANS MARX (CONDENSED BOLD) — Geometric Sans-Serif
Another font addition to the ever evolving and growing collection of revivals and inspired works called LETTERS OP MAAT, a project celebrating and trying to recreate the typographic contributions originally designed by Dutch graphic designer Jurriaan Schrofer.

This time I did a revival  based on a sans-serif lettering concept Schrofer did in 1968 during his time with Mouton & Co. The lettering concept was seen on his book cover design for the book "Marx and contemporary scientific thoughts; Marx et la pensée scientifique contemporaine". The book cover only shows 4 lowercase letters, spelling the word "marx". But these pretty much have all the important features to extrapolate the remainder of the alphabet from. At the same time having just 4 letters allows for a much more loosely approach towards inventing the other letter solutions.

I decided to create a typeface family of multiple styles each with different weight properties (Light, Medium & Bold in both Compressed and Condensed form). The medium weight is what was actually seen on the original book cover.

I hope you like it,
