Metal is a font-family supporting Cyrillic and Latin scripts. It’s a sans-serif, offering nine fonts ranging from a normal width to a decidedly extended width. The single weight corresponds to a strong Regular.
Metal was inspired the square letterforms present in notable typefaces of the 70s such as Microgramma, Eurostyle and Bank Gothic.
Metal is in-between sci-fi visual culture and brutalism. In details, Metal has closed endings and an overall square appearance while having a certain roundness. The letters approach is tight.
The particularity of this font resides in the treatment of the descendants which are constrained to the baseline. This provides a strong horizontality in the reading. This linearity is amplified by the use of the most extended widths. Thus the vertical space occupied during the composition is very small.
