About Moron
A distinctive display typeface: a winsome-but-nasty, old-and-yet-new drawing of Victorian sans-serif letterforms (with 1970s sausage fonts thrown in). It is based, very loosely, upon Tuscan and Grotesque type found in the churches and cemeteries of the city of Glasgow. These letterforms originated before the dawn of modernism and at a time when the Arts and Crafts Movement was flourishing. In this age of early mass production and mechanisation, the Victorian ability to balance functionality with ornamentation had fascinating results. Moron is a reflection of that heft and delicacy, drawn for the modern age.
