Elevon - Futuristic Feel to the Letterforms
5 Font | OTF | 0.4 Mb

Inspired by the science fiction genre, Elevon is a font that belongs amongst the stars. It has a square construction that strictly adheres to a grid, and this gives a futuristic feel to the letterforms. Over 700 glyphs were created for Elevon, each one starkly beautiful with precise angular lines. The rounded corners prevent the font from becoming too harshly clinical, but retain the basic square shape beneath. It manages to combine the soft and hard together to create a typeface with real character, that is often pleasantly surprising in its wordforms. The Standard Edition includes a complete Latin A Extended character set.. Please see the Corporate Edition of the font for an extended character set with Greek and Cyrillic scripts.
