|Film director Sergei Eisenstein was a major influence on the Constructivist movement through his collaboration with Alexander Rodchenko and by inspiring other artists of the era. Thus it seems appropriate that the final font in our Constructivist Font Collection should be named after Eisenstein, especially as the font partakes of the kind of lettering and design which he particularly favored.Eisenstein features an English-language character set based on Russian Constructivist lettering from a party propaganda poster of the late 1920s. The font includes customized capital letters and small-caps with compatible weighting, which is similar to the original lettering. A full Cyrillic character set is not available yet, but may be added in the future if there is interest.
While we would never support or endorse an inhumane political system like Communism, especially given our founder’s experience living in Russia during the soviet era, there is an undeniable power to the design ideas which came out of the early days of communism and we hope that people will take those strong ideas and put them to better uses and thereby redeem the work of artists like Rodchenko and Eisenstein.
