    Mack is a humanist sans serif inspired by the natural, brush-made variations of details originally rooted in geometry. The spark for this project came from lettering on a map of Mackinac Island whose angled terminals, pointed peaks, and variation of proportion were all details that set it apart from the strictly geometric forms it appears to reference. Rather than copying the few letters there and extrapolating them into a whole font, Mack is an original design following similar principles. Its structure and contrast resemble those of mid-century geometric typefaces while its curves and terminals are angled to emulate the stroke of a brush.

    This blending of contrasting sources is rationalized by applying the same set of rules to both the roman and italic fonts. All curved stroke endings share the same 10º angle, while all diagonal strokes snap to an angle slightly off from perpendicular. This creates harmony in the construction, but also the contrast needed to differentiate between the italic and roman fonts. Because the italic angle is set at the same 10º, its vertical strokes become parallel with the terminals changing the fit of letters such as the C, S, and J to become more subtle. Meanwhile, the symmetrical diagonal strokes in characters such as the A, M, V, W, and Y in the roman are more energetic in the italic—becoming distinctly asymmetrical as they snap to their new angles and shoot forward across the page.

    Mack performs best at the edges of the typographic scale spectrum. Set in logotypes and headlines, its interlocking terminals and unique angles are attention-grabbing and fun to look at. Set in running text, these same details paired with its low x-height create a healthy rhythm with enough uniqueness in the forms to keep it readable.

    Although indirectly influenced by early geometric fonts, Mack runs the opposite direction of the refined, cold, typefaces that define the genre today. Instead, it builds on the quirks found in those early examples and highlights them in a distinctly human way.
