Russian Type Designer Eugene Tantsurin has recently released two fonts through our online market Type Department; Resist Sans Text and Resist Sans Display. Both are minimal yet free-spirited, with their own unique senses of character.
Eugene is also a co-founder of Grotesky Yours foundry. Since gaining a Communication Arts degree from the University of Bangkok, Eugene has worked in freelance design more broadly, and in recent years has discovered a passion for typography.
As a body of work, Eugene notes that ‘Resist Sans is a free-spirited neo-grotesque that embodies both the innate desire for revolt and a tendency towards uniformity. While Resist Sans preserves the neat, minimalist look which is associated with neo-grotesques, it also accentuates the tentativeness of each letterform. The name, too, hints at the rebellious character of the typeface.’
Filled with unusual subtleties and quirks, such as delicate ink-traps in the Text style, and slightly elongated ascenders and descenders in the Display, and with over 880 glyphs, Resist Sans is a vast and characterful family; supporting most European languages and featuring Extended Cyrillic.
Varied and extensive, Resist Sans is definitely worth a closer look. Available on Type Department now.
