About Madromit Font Family
Madromit(ma-do-ro-mi) is a somewhat nostalgic display font.
Do you remember computer advertisements in the 80s and 90s? Yes, it is the most excited period in the history of computer.
We call the design in this period Primitive Digital Design.
Madromit is, so to speak, the revival or reconstruction of the primitive digital type in the period.
The structure and elements of this font are very simple and the key features are geometric shape and simple griddy design with rounded corners, oval bowls, and right‐angled joints which we used to see in the primitive period.
In addition to this, Madromit has one more characteristic feature — classic engraving font —. It is called Open Style.
Open style is one of the classic method to decorate and emphasize the font.
Our aim is the synergy by the mixture of primitive digital design and classic engraving method.
This mixture makes new impression we have never seen before.
Madromit family consists of 5 styles for stacking color font.
Please use Photoshop or Illustrator, or your favorite graphic design apps that can handle layers.
Layers are the printing plates of wood type. You should be able to change text color for each layers.

You can add open effect by stacking "Fill" layers over the Standard layer.
