Deus is when type design is brought to extreme. It tries to answer the question whether you can design all glyphs in one axis of stress. It does not try to be all purpose, useful at all sizes, legible or readable and most of all it does not try to be neutral. It has its own style you either accept or not.

Every glyph has the same width across four masters, so you can change the style in one title or even make an animation out of that. It also has some cool animated emojis, so make sure you take all four styles!

Deus has been designed by Jan Charvát who studied programming graphical applications on the Czech Technical University in Prague. After finishing school he worked as a freelancer and as an evening news graphic operator. He moved to Germany and worked for Monotype as a Font Engineer and there he specialized in scripting and large family production with focus on diacritics. Now back in Prague he’s freelancer and teacher of type theory and graphic design on two major higher education schools.
