About this font family
A condensed font using constructivism history to convey the cold hearted steel of machinery and progress. Gridlock tries it’s best to fit as much info as possible in a small space neatly in line and with the subtle curves and smoothness of bent steel.
The inspiration for Gridlock actually came accidentally after designing some lettering for a self-promo project and it needed something that just was condensed with visual appear. So imagining about how condensed fonts feel, I imagined them being squished together just like cars in traffic are forced to work together to make it to their end destination.
