Metria Display Font

Metria is a geometric display typeface based on consistent angles and an imperfect circle. It's a very versatile display font inspired by rigid, geometric forms infused with organic curves to bring the words to life.

I was inspired by the inherent contradiction between perfectly straight and naturally curved, and with that in mind, I crafted each glyph by hand first, then solidified it on the screen.

I've always been interested in the combining of opposites, and mixing things that aren't immediately harmonious. It takes time and effort to make the two work together in balance, and I feel that this typeface exemplifies this balance that I try to find in my work.
