Publisher: OtherwhereCollective
-OC Format Shards was designed by Andrew Bellamy and published by OtherwhereCollective. -OC Format Shards contains 9 styles and family package options.  

-OC Format Shards violates the highly regarded -OC Format Sans Bd to create something more spontaneous, visceral and expressive. Designed for when readability of copy isn't the primary concern-but making a statement is-it's perfect for disruption, subversion and protest. Inspiration was taken from the classic experimental font Shatter designed by Vic Carless in 1973 which was used widely in British Punk graphics of the late 1970s. In contrast to the consistently parallel angles used to distort Shatter, the characters of -OC Format Shards have been sliced instinctively, quickly and freehand giving them and resulting text a less mechanical and more visceral appearance. As a display font it has a more limited character set than the original -OC Format Sans but still includes accents for numerous languages, stylistic alternates and circled characters.
