Nantua is inspired by the Russian Constructivism from the early 1920s. Artists like Aleksandr Rodchenko used typography as forms.
Nantua can be used with that very same principal. It’s a very geometrical display font with hard edges. Used in big sizes it is very ‘in your face’. Used in small sizes it tends to work like a compact background pattern.
With very small inner forms, Nantua needs to be used in big sizes to be legible. It’s preferably seen on posters or flyers.
