JS-SANS MARX (COMPRESSED LIGHT) — 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,

Interrested in more of my Jurriaan Schrofer inspired? Please take a look a my complete collection of Fontstructions tagged with STF-LETTERS OP MAAT for the full catalog of fonts I contributed to this project so far.

Cheers

I'm glad to see you had a good laugh over that one missing letter (typo). And of course: Thanks for this valuable contribution to my creative endeavors, this was of such tremendous help, and, even more so, was a delight to read! 🙌🙌🙌🙌

Bye... 😞

Actually I was going to say something like this:

"You mother-"!%$*@ %$!", I hope you eat  "?&!^" and  "*@ % " I wish you a very very merry frontal lobotomy..

But then my (not so lovely) Lena walked in and said "Meow! Meow! Meow!"  for like 10 minutes straight, so yeah, Unicopixel got lucky this once, as I can only manage one fight at a time!
