After exploring motion and different types of movement, I was drawn to dance, specifically Jazz dance. Jazz dance became popular in the 1920's and "Jazz" is inspired by the posters that were used to promote different balls and dances at the time.

AKROY is a tiny readable font from a 2x2 grid. First of all I try as possible to use no Stack and Composite but at a certain point I had to take advantage of FS2.0
The influence is comming from a mix of genre of a same period 1920~1930: European and russian posters, Art Deco fonts mouvement.
I imerge myslef by passing in review over an hundred of posters and close everything to modestly create this font. ~~
UPPERCASE: use Diagonals ARSVXYZ
LOWERCASE: Mostly Square everywhere
here it'is not for promoting a site but use as a reference of those masters typographers and graphic designers of the 20's and 30's. ~~
