Maro, a razor-sharp stencil typeface for expressive text
An organically created stencil typeface that follows the logical contrast principles of letter construction until the shape is fractured at its narrowest point.
Maro, the latest typeface by the prolific type designer Nikola Djurek, is a continuation of Djurek's investigation into the structure of letterforms. Maro is an unusual stencil typeface that, rather than slicing letters into parts, increases the contrast between the stick and thin to the point that the continuity of the letter construction is fractured.
Maro has very large x-height, flat curves and triangular serifs that give the typeface sharpness and urgency. Maro is designed for large spacial applications, posters or book covers, or any medium whose visual identity would benefit from assertive expression or voice.
