 Working with Tungsten was something I was originally a little nervous about because it was just outside of my comfort zone. It’s narrowness and angularity made it a font that wouldn’t have necessarily been my first choice, but the more I worked with it the more I fell in love with it.

July 2018. A landing page designed to showcase the font, Tungsten. The page was inspired by the Futurism and Constructivism movements and pays homage to Tungsten’s origin as a sign painting font.

 The first thing to emerge about Tungsten was its moods. Every mood that was evoked was strong, and direct. This is not a soft or gentle font.
