Font Family: Stratum 1, Number of fonts: 6*OTF, Type Foundry: Process Type Foundry, Designer: Eric Olson, Design date: 2004
Stratum is a family of typefaces built from a synthesis of contemporary and historical sources. The austere geometry of early 20th century display faces paired with a desire for a contemporary lowercase have merged to produce this family of six weights.
Unlike Stratum 2
, Stratum 1 has sharp-angled terminals similar in style to early 20th century favorites like Bank Gothic
. This gives it more of an editorial and news feel.
