Blesk

Blesk is a chromatic typeface inspired by vintage book covers and designed for magazines, headlines, theater, animated titles, three-dimensional printing, literary foils, mysteries & other display needs.

The name Blesk borrows the Czech word for lightning, flash or thunder. The drawing plays off the contrast of semi-conventional zaftig letterforms with subtle Eastern-European tinge, contrasting them with sharp lightning-bolt inlines.

Blesk starts with a primer solid style (capable of handling longer text blocks), and includes inline, left & right which integrate into louder layering potential of over seven distinct combinations. Intermingling styles allow for shape-shifting; from a dimensional look via complementary colors, to more dramatic clashes that can be uniquely emphasized when printed off-register, bringing in sense of age, modernism, and craftsmanship.

Featured in Print Magazine’s spring 2015 issue, and Typographica’s Best of 2015.
