My take on those classic serif style stencil designs.
Initially I started this design as a all caps display style, the desicion for a lowercase came once the uppercase already had been completed, and I truly had a hard time making a good looking lowercase for this one.
Also it felt like kerning this style was much harder to see and get right than most other fonts I made.
There still remains a number of things I had rather seen different, like those numerals, but this is the best I could do for now, I hope you like it!
Sort of revival of the lettering that Jurriaan Schrofer designed back in 1957 for Dutch timber trader called "houthandel Rote".
The original sketch by Schrofer featured the text "standaard profielen" in all lowercase letters (I will post a image bellow)
Now, as far as I know this was all the characters Jurriaan designed for this project. The designs parameters in Jurriaans sketch doesn't allow a lot of freedom and remains unclear on how a character with crossing strokes like k or x wouldve been done. So its kind of a tricky one to extend easily, therefor I just captured its basic letterforms for now.
What suposed to be a revival of the "1957 Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven Brabant" poster, original work by Wim Crouwel
Actually failed terribly since I never peeked at the original while I made this (thought i had it well preserved in my memory, but seems I did not).
Nonetheless It isn't a bad font I guess, so...
