Iskra (spark or flash) is a new daring sans serif typeface by talented designer Tom Grace, who has already published two interesting typefaces with TypeTogether, the blackletter Givry and Alizé, a chancery italic.
Iskra, containing several width and weight variations, was conceived to challenge the limits between utilitarian and decorative. Sporting a low-contrast profile, it is a study of bridled energy in the Cyrillic and Latin scripts, and an oblique tribute to the less-predictable style of brush lettering. The first 14 styles will be available at the end of summer.
