Metal is a font-family supporting Cyrillic and Latin scripts. It’s a sans-serif, offering nine fonts ranging from a normal width to a decidedly extended width, in a single weight corresponding to a Regular. Metal had for reference during the creating process the square letterforms present in notable typefaces of the 70s such as Microgramma, Eurostyle and Bank Gothic. Metal is something between sci-fi visual culture and brutalism. In details, Metal has closed endings and an overall square appearance while having a certain roundness, the approach to letters is tight. The particularity of this font resides in the treatment of the descendants which are not deleted but constrained on the baseline. This provides a strong horizontality in the reading. This linearity is amplified by the use of the most advanced widths. Thus the vertical space occupied during the composition is very small. Metal can be used, for example, in its widest widths for headings and logos, and then in its narrowest widths for short texts. Several stylistic sets allow you to select many alternates in the both scripts but also to override the restriction of descendants on the baseline to give them the possibility of occupying all the vertical space necessary. Punctuation also benefits from a stylistic play.
