This font is designed to look alike Soviet typewriter font. A similar font was used by early-90's Russian-developed word processor, 'Lexicon' by Eugene Veselov.
This was a simple idea started from S and T. Most of the glyphs have two verticle strokes that are 4-bricke-wide and a 1-brick-wide area in the middle of the character. except I, L, S and T (actually a lot more). They are a bit different. Especially S, T and L. The whole characters are only 8 bricks wide. As I mentioned above, It's because the whole font started from these characters.
Straka the name came from last name of a person. The S and T reminds me of this person's last name. I like this last name although I don't even know him.
About the Latin extension, I have made only the glyphs that require no new design, just diacritics and already made letters. So I can pretend like hard-working on fonts but copy paste in reality. :P
Also, I made Arabic glyphs. Only isolated forms. Which I suppose won't be a comfortable experience to Arabic users. It's like every letter has crazy swashes but every letters are lightyears away from each other.(or is it?)
Credit me bcuz it took days and I gave it all to you for free. Unthankful hairless ape. :p
has it gone 2 far? hope it didn't hurt you.
I saw a old poster on the internet and this is a remake of the font it used.
Where are the caps? Who cares? A bold, minimal-grid font so named because it looks sort of jellybeany. Kind of. I'm still not sure I like how dark the 'k' seems, but any fix looks worse. If there's demand, I'll add an accented set, perhaps.
«Update 2017-03-29» – I've reworked the aforementioned K. I've changed the lowercase to be a thinner version, along with much of the punctuation. I've even filled out the Latin-1 Supplement, though I loosen up considerably on the basic design elements to get things to work within the established grid.
