What is the ArchiType font?
With the famous and much used Eurostile and Bank Gothic in my mind I wanted to design a mono-line font as simple and legible as possible. A square with rounded corners, i.e., the letter ‘o’ as its basis. From there on back to basics, so straights remained simple straights with 90° endings, whatever the angle. Numbers are monospaced.
The result seems to be a pleasantly balanced and neutral font. Excellent for display purposes and surprisingly legible in even small sizes.
This perhaps typical approach by an architect led to the name of the font: ArchiType.
