This font is fire. A fun font that looks like an alphabet long advent candelabra, a Lucia crown, whats on the side of a really fast car or perhaps what letters would look like if they were constantly in water. It’s also just what the name implies; flames.
Mutter is a display typeface with legibility in mind. With 50° and 70° diagonals as one of its key components. This is my first attempt to create a more serious typeface and a way for me to learn more about the design process behind it. Along the way I have tried to implement what I have learned about legibility.
In german “Mutter” means mother and in Swedish the meaning is screw-nut. As a half german the word have both meanings to me. It became a natural name since both words embodies the inspiration for the typeface. Mutter got its square shape from the angular form of a screw-nut. The inspiration from my mom does not come from her being square, but that she is the opposite of that – full of energy, in motion and close to laughter. Mutter is created from this foundation, a typeface with a smile and a strong appearance.
Drip is like dreaming, like trying to gather your thoughts but they keep floating away, going through the walls. Drip is a typeface unable to find structure or make shape of things. It's got that wet look. Is it sad, or is it just how things are?
