MIDNIGHT KERNBOY from Sentinel Type, designed by James Arboghast
Hello, and thanks for downloading Midnight Kernboy -- a 21st century interpretation of City.
The slab serif, or egyptienne type style, was introduced around 1815 by Vincent Figgins; at the time it was considered the most brilliant typographic invention of the 19th century, and the style quickly established itself as a favorite for headline and poster work. George Trump's City (1930) marked the end of classicism in Egyptienne type the same year it started -- with the pure geometric forms of Memphis (1930), proving once again that classical periods in art never last long...
Or failing a post-modern ironic sense of humor, one might try to reform the monoline squared egyptienne by restructuring it and selectively knocking off serifs.
Midnight Kernboy avoids City's somewhat homogeneous letter treatment with simplified structures and cunning serif omissions. The result is an elegant semi-serif typeface with a minimalist contemporary feel leaning toward futurism.
