Working on revisions to Structura a few weeks ago brought the whole topic of Russian poster art to the surface and it seemed like a good time to do a font based on typical poster lettering from soviet-era propaganda posters. The result is Krasny Mir, a new font which combines the look of super-bold cyrillic letters with some nice special features, including a set of capital initials with star embellishments and selected alternate character forms. We were going to name the font Red Star, but discovered there was already another font with that name, so we went with Krasny Mir which is fun because both words have double meanings in Russian, which means they combine into four different possible names.

You can download and try the demo version of Krasny Mir in TrueType format for Mac or PC. The full version of the font is available if you want to BUY IT NOW.
