Synthica was designed by Christoph Mescher and published by Volcano Type. Synthica contains 2 designs and household package choices. p > Synthica is the advanced variation of a geometrically constructed typeface-- designed for a thesis project in summer season 2010 in Pforzheim. In the context of electronic music and the profound analysis of its criteria, this typeface is primarly based on a stringent modular grid. In addition, the ascender, descender and the x height had actually a little been increased in order to even out a visual distinction in size between the glyphs. The name „ Synthica" dervives from a standard concept in electronic sound synthesis. Sinus, triangle and square are some of the fundamental waveforms in the synthesizers' oscillator area and were hence used as geometric modules for the grid. The modularity and geometry likewise obtain from various structures of electronic music. The strong emphasis on diagonal lines produces a balanced typeface that connotates electronic music patterns with highly recognisable glyphs. The contrast between digital and analog is another standard idea of this typeface: while Synthica Summary has a more synthetic and vulnerable character, the filled variation Synthica Black works as the analog counterpart.
