HedraDesigner: Sijya Gupta
Publisher: Indian Type Foundry
Hedra was designed by Sijya Gupta and published by Indian Type Foundry. Hedra includes 6 designs and family plan options. The typeface is presently # 9 in Hot New Fonts. p > Hedra is an experimental sans with monolinear strokes mixing 2 typographic hairs. On the one hand, the letterforms are very geometric: 'O' and 'o' are almost best circles with just a smidgen of optical correction to make them more readable. Together with the common 'diagonal nature' used to some letter parts, Hedra feels quite technical and text set in it even practically looks futuristic. On the other hand, the letterforms include some art nouveau qualities: the diagonals inside the 'A', 'B' and 'E' are more historical than technical, while the 'K', 'V', and 'W' all have some unconventional rounded components that look like call-backs to the beginning of the twentieth century. Via an OpenType function, users can make text look more technical and less historical if desired: Stylistic Set 1 changes the curved-diagonal 'K', 'X', 'Y', 'k', and 'x' with straight-diagonal alternates.
