Typeface design based on a typographic poster that is celebrating Wim Crouwel, and was designed by Matthew Lew.
Recap of Wim Crouwel's famous typeface design for Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum "Vormgevers" Poster that was published in 1968.
Maybe I will include the full uppercase letters soon as well.
Improved version of Wim Gestreept, I reworked proportions and character balance. Still might turn into something else if I can work out more ligatures.This is a clone of Wim Gestreept
I've noticed that most influential renditions of Wim Crouwel's fonts are incredibly literal in finding solutions to readability.
My influences come from several places and I plan to create "chamfered" and "rounded" iterations of this typeface.
Wim Crowel's "Neue Alphabet" is the primary driver, hence the font name. Crowel's Foundry specimen is reliant on a 5x5 grid with chamfered, 45 degree corners on glyphs.
For this "Classic", bitmap-styled design, I opt out of utilizing any non-rectilinear principle, but keep the 5x5 grid. Characters have been heavily modified with readability in display as the primary driver, and an invented symbol and number system is created to suit the new system.
I'd love to hear what people think of my take!
Inspired bt the works of great Wim Crouwel and striped sports jerseys. Also a study in 45 degrees diagonals, happily provided by fontstructor and master Goatmeal. Basic latin support and a few ligatures. **UPDATE 19.11.2014 I worked out a few unbalanced characters and added ligatures. Hope you like it!
**UPDATE 2016: please check the new version under the name of Wim V2.
