Joschmi

Release 2018
Designed by: Flavia Zimbardi
Client: Adobe Fonts

Joost Schmidt’s (1893–1948) name is undoubtedly connected with monolinear condensed letters of geometric appearance—his unfinished draft of a stencil alphabet, constructed on grid paper in 1930, is much lesser known. These modular shapes simply consist of half circles, quarter circles and square strokes with half-round terminals. Joschmi overcomes legibility issues usually associated with this stencil style, with special attention to the design of white space.
