November Stencil, a heavy-duty stencil typeface with playful layering styles
Inspired by industrial signage, November Stencil gives a unique flavour to short texts and also provides surprising possibilities for colour typography and motion graphics.
It all started with November, a rational, utilitarian typeface inspired by street signs, and it continued with October, a rounded typeface created by the rotary cutters of a CNC router. November Stencil, the latest expansion of the project, continues to explore the industrial heritage of typography with the familiar interrupted strokes seen on railway wagons, wooden crates and architectural diagrams.
True to its name, November Stencil has the expected gaps, systematically positioned to break letters into strokes, or sometimes to maximise the aesthetic impact. Each of its nine stencil weights also offers three separate layered styles that open intriguing possibilities for the creative use of colours and animation.
November Stencil is available in three writing scripts (Latin, Cyrillic, Greek). Armenian, Hebrew and Arabic are under development and will follow shortly.
