Background

The strong vertical axis and unvarying stroke weight conveys coolness, solidity, and substance. The squared counters and edges of the negative spaces are balanced by the precise arcs of the bowls and shoulders. In the Beveled version, the angularity is emphasized by the chiseled outer edges. Badloc Compression, a short version that works especially well in display work when combined with the taller Badloc faces.
