Background

Downturn is a square sans-serif based on painted signage and industrial letters. Letterforms in Downturn are simple constructed letters with shapes and proportions similar to those found in some Russian constructivist posters. The spacing in Downturn is deliberately tight and uneven to mimic its sources; this makes it most appropriate for use at large sizes.
