November Compressed

Design Concept

Sometimes there are situations when a friendly typeface is too imposing. Sometimes you just want to use a typeface to get the job done. November Compressed is a rational, utilitarian typeface inspired by street signage. Unlike most signage types it also handles long texts with ease.

While most tool-based typefaces feature angled terminals, November’s end strokes are always straight, anticipating the following letter, creating distinctive counterspaces that support the visual rhythm of the words.
