Plastic typeface slovakia czech republic czechoslovakia plastic simple chain variable font serif sans thin light regular medium bold black font typeface

Plastic is a monospace variable font based on four master styles: Chain Black, Chain Thin, Simple Black and Simple Thin. The design of the “Chain” styles enables 3D printing as the individual characters can be easily connected through a special character gaps made of serifs at the end of strokes or by splitting up the round shapes e.g. “o” and “g”. On the other hand, the „Simple” styles have no such feature and they are better suited for longer texts and small text sizes. The principle of chaining and the design of the font is inspired by the legendary Czechoslovak toy called Cečka (English: C’s), that became a phenomenon in the 1980’s. The plastic hooks and shapes could be linked up in chains.

Typeface was made in cooperation with typedesigner Jitka Janečková.
