Berliner Mauer

Berliner Mauer Ost is, in fact, another free of charge brush font. What makes it interesting is the fact that the characters were designed through analysis and reconstruction of a number of graffiti from the Berlin Wall, that is on the eastern side of the wall. The basic idea was to try and covey the spontaneity, rawness, but also the visual qualities of brush-written letters on concrete wall. The greatest challenge was constructing a Cyrillic set of characters based on Latin characters from the wall. The result are two sets of All Caps characters, both Cyrillic and Latin, as well as their alternatives that when combined, along with inconsistent kerning, yield additional dynamics and spontaneity. The sets include a basic palette of characters.

Created by Bratislav Milenkovic, and the font is soon available for free download.
