The now released »Konstata« is really a niche font for special use. Created for use as stencil for stating your messages it features a set of only 10 different elements out of which you can compose the complete typeface. Therefore it borders between being somewhat grungy, modular and classic.
Konstata is supposed to be stenciled with closed counters — which is possible due to the modular stystem. In fact there are no bridges in it at all. It consists of a complete set of unicase letters — numerals are ment to be done als Natwest mortgages first time buyers roman numbers, german umlaute are includes as ue (ä), oe (ö), ae (ä) and ss (ß). Any medium will do the job but I suggest using fast drying paint like Placka, Edding or Montana 94 spray-paint to speed up the process of composing all elements.
On the keyboard you will find all 10 elements on the position of numerals (0−9); a set of fully composed characters on the position of lowercase letters (a-z incl. ü, ö, ä, ß); and every letters composed into the lowest possible number of parts (maximal two, often only one) at the position of capital letters.
Update! 04.09.2010 — tighter metrics and improved kerning, also new characters like exclamation and question mark.
