About this font family

Milibus is a smart, anti-retro sans with battleship styling, technical proportions and even color. Milibus was a stream of consciousness attempt to create something which has a technical/industrial look while avoiding some of the minimalist 1970’s truisms seen in most “techno” fonts: keep everything as modular, square and minimalist as possible. Milibus avoids those modular traps. The construction of the C and S are intentionally utilitarian and DIN-like which helps Milibus avoid looking like it’s simply minimalist for minimalism’s sake. The closed aperture (mouth) of C,G,J,S,a,c,e,s was done party to mimic a 20th Century technical quality but also to avoid the 1990’s platitude of “open means readable” (Lucida, Frutiger etc.). The whole font has a deliberately non-modular look: compare the lowercase latter and you can see how I avoided matching shapes. The vertical strokes on A,V,W,Y,w,v were inspired by 1980’s dot matrix printer fonts which often used flat sides out of geometric necessity. Those flat sides are the reason the lowercase y is unconventional: a orthodox y using flat sides looks awkward and constricted, hence the unique design. The slanted lowercase ascenders are a tribute to 20th Century highway sign lettering and it makes the lowercase l more identifiable from the capital I.
