November Stencil

Design Concept

November Stencil is 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 explores the industrial heritage of typography with the familiar interrupted strokes seen on railway wagons, wooden crates and architectural diagrams.

Chromatic Typography

The Stencil gaps are 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.

Layering

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 Type System

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, each available in three logical widths, which offer complete typographic palette for the most demanding designers. November Stencil completes this type system, and is more useful for large text and display use.
