Rodchenko Constructed ML was developed by Alekandr Rodchenko and released by HiH. Rodchenko Constructed ML includes 2 designs and household plan alternatives. p > RODCHENKO CONSTRUCTED ML and RODCHENKO GROTESK ML

One of the most innovative minds in the modern Russian avant garde, Aleksandr Rodchenko was one of the leaders of Constructivism throughout the 1920s. Herbert Spencer includes Rodchenko in his book Pioneers of Modern Typography. Rodchenko started creating posters in 1923. The Soviet Union was young and many, including Rodchenko were fired with innovative zeal and idealism. He thought that art must be practical, useful and without adornment. Many others swam in the same stream and arrived at practically the very same place: Schwitters, El Lissitzky, van Doesburg, Bayer and Tschichold working in the West; Klutsis, Levinsky, Gan, and others working in the Soviet Union. Previously, similar typefaces include Baltimore Geometric ML and Teutonia-- both digitized by HiH Retrofonts.

Rodchenko Constructed ML and Rodchenko Grotesk ML are two sans-serif typefaces with both Roman and Cyrillic alphabets. They are based on the lettering Rodchenko used on his posters throughout the 20s. In some cases the letters were squared off, as in Rodchenko Constructed ML. Other times, the outdoors corners were rounded, as in Rodchenko Grotesk ML. Both are strong and direct, meant for display screen work designed to communicate a bold, direct message.

Features: 1. Glyphs for the 1250 Central Europe, the 1251 Cyrillic, the 1252 Western Europe, the 1254 Turkish and the 1257 Baltic Code Pages. 2. Total of 424 glyphs. 3. 61 kerning sets. 3. OpenType GSUB design functions: ornm, salt, kern 4. Tabular Numbers 5. Several optional bullets 6. Historical ornamental political symbols

The zip package includes two variations of each font at no extra charge. There is an OTF variation which is in Open PS (Post Script Type 1) format and a TTF version which remains in Open TT (True Type) format. Usage whichever works finest for your applications.
