Type Tuesday: The Typographic Playground That is Enorme
Dubbed “a personal take on modular typefaces,” DSType’s Enorme draws inspiration from Russian Constructivism in the most modern of ways.
As the foundry writes, “At first glance it will look like a plain monospaced typeface, however that couldn't be further from the truth. With over 3,000 glyphs, all easily accessible through a simple set of opentype features, this typeface quickly reveals itself as more of a typographic playground.”
Typographic playground, indeed—with shape-shifting rounded and square forms that can be stretched to the bounds of legibility and back on both axes, Pedro Leal and Dino dos Santos’ Enorme is a delightful way to do some design frolicking.
