Metropolis 1920

Studio: Josip Kelava

Client: Self-initiated

Metropolis 1920 comes from the industrial movement of the 1920′s where skyscrapers where born. Using a double line technique, the studio wanted to create its own Art Deco style font that represented this era. The result is a bold, bumptious typeface with a stolidly calm disposition. The font was the highest free downloaded font available on in its first week and is recognised by Awwwards as the number 1 free display and decorative typeface in their 100 Greatest Fonts Collection.
