Awesome FTRT Typeface Design by George Strouzas

Ad

Behance is an amazing site for inspiration. We use it all the time and I have, in particular, used it for some type design research. I decided to finish the Abduzeedo font but we need some improvements and that's where Behance comes to save us and we will list the whole process starting with references. In this case the FTRT Typeface design by George Strouzas.

The FTRT typeface is the result of a 3-month research and design.

It is constituted by capital latin and greek letters, numbers and symbols, in three different weights and a total of 251 different glyphs. It is characterised as a modular typeface, in which all the glyphs have exactly the same height and weight, in order for the typesetting to be easier in a grid environment or for lettering - the letters being either in a landscape or a portrait setting.

The inspiration during research were the posters and the wider work of Dutch designer Willem Hendrik (Wim) Crowell, known also as gridnik, who propagated his love for typographic grids, typography and visual order in general.
