Doctrine Stencil

by Virus
  |  available for Desktop

Albums

5 fonts from $80.00
Doctrine Stencil Doctrine Stencil

A utilitarian display typeface with a muscular character, Doctrine Stencil is the revolutionary comrade of the text typeface Doctrine. From the obscure starting point of the North Korean national airline livery, Doctrine Stencil has grown to encompass a series of more mature typographic influences. By blending elements of twentieth-century neo-grotesque, humanist and geometric styles, Doctrine Stencil is at once universal and idiosyncratic. Doctrine Stencil is informed mid-twentieth-century modernism, yet is more human and less clinical than many modernist faces. The rounded, lighter weights speak with graceful composure whilst the large x-height, low contrast and squarer, heavier weights give Doctrine Stencil an affable charm and a persuasive voice.

False Idol False Idol

A typeface based on bad rubdown lettering taken from 1970s pornographic magazines (that I haven't seen, but if I had i could think of nothing more pathetic than look at typography in a porn mag rather than the images) The original letterforms were trying to mimic a feeling of ‘glamour’ but succeeded in just looking seedy. It seems to have its own beauty though which i tried to convey in this font.

Nylon and Draylon Nylon and Draylon

Nylon is based on letterforms in paintings from the 13-16th century, they seemed to have this manic range of shapes which had very little to do with the classic ideal. Draylon is a much more restrained font based on 17-18th century letterforms. Both have been drawn to reflect they were produced on a computer. Both have been drawn so that you can mix and plunder letterforms from different centuries in the same word.
