Temporary State (was: Abstrkt) [Roman Gornitsky]

Moscow, and before that, St. Petersburg, Russia-based foundry, first called Abstrkt, and later extended to The Temporary State. All fonts are by Roman Gornitsky (b. 1986, Leningrad). In 2020, the foundry was located in Leipzig, Germany. Roman's fonts:

  • Krisis Sans (2008).
  • Lawyer Gothic (2008).
  • Littera Plain (2008) and Littera Text (2008). An interpretation of the most popular sans family in Russia.
  • Proto Sans (2008). A 42-style constructivist family.
  • Vremena (2009) and Vremena Grotesk (2009) each have eight styles, and are their interpretation of Times and Arial, respectively. See also Nowie Vremena (2011). Vremena was extended in 2016-2017 to the free typeface Wremena.
  • Fun City (2010). An extensive family of typefaces designed for multi-layered use. Each letter is designed on the same grid, so overlays can create great effects.
  • The Stroke Sans (2010).
  • Differentura (2010). A grotesk.
  • Lineatura (2011). A great art deco-meets avant garde family.

    Twentytwelve (in styles Slab N, Sans R, Sans C, Serif C, Sans G, Sans). Created in 2011-2012 at the Jan van Eyck Academy in The Netherlands, and inspired by Paul Renner's original designs for Futura. Extended in 2017 as Five Years Later.

  • Manege (2016). Manege was initially designed for the celebration of 200 years of Manege Central Exhibition Hall in Moscow: The shapes of the typeface are heavily influenced by monumental typefaces of late 1950s Stalinist architecture, as well as hand-drawn title pages of Soviet books of the same period and typefaces like Telingater, Lazurski, Trajan and even some Romain du Roi. Initially designed for all caps typesetting, Manege tries to combine in itself monumentality with clumsiness, a particular mixture of feelings one often gets from looking at old stone-carved inscriptions.
  • Panama and Panama Monospace (2017). A text typeface in the style of Century.
  • Soyuz Grotesk (2017). This free almost experimental sans is based on a Cyrillic version of Helvetica made by two students of the Moscow print Institute in 1963, Yuri Kurbatov and Maxim Zhukov.
  • Steinbeck (2018). A playful sans.
