About

What happens if we combine two medieval styles, Blackletter and the old Russian Ustav? Please meet CSTM Xprmntl 03, a new display tool designed by Yury Ostromentsky, CSTM Fonts. CSTM Xprmntl 03 has three styles: concise and contemporary uncial Cyrillic, angular and rhythmic gothic Blackletter, and the in-between — Medium. The most interesting thing happens exactly halfway between two poles of interpolation: such letters as a, k, y, х proved to be the most stubborn, and they have completely different forms in two scripts. The eccentricities of the in-between didn’t go anywhere, while all the conflicts were resolved — and this is how Medium style was born, the one with peculiar, glitchy curves.
