Hiero Experimental Display Typeface

Scott Newland shared a personal typography project titled Hiero. Hiero is a self-initiated experimental display typeface. The project aim was to create a collection of simplistic, block-like characters whose designs are limited to the use of four geometries: a circle, 3x7 rectangle, isosceles-acute and isosceles-right triangle. It comes in two styles, mass (block) and void (line). 

After each character took shape, detailing was applied to subtly contrast with their simple forms, giving the appearance of depth, scale and acts of assembly.
