Rodchenko Constructed ML

RODCHENKO CONSTRUCTED ML and RODCHENKO GROTESK ML

One of the most creative minds in the modern Russian avant garde, Aleksandr Rodchenko was one of the leaders of Constructivism during the 1920s.

Herbert Spencer includes Rodchenko in his bookPioneers of Modern Typography. Rodchenko began designing posters in 1923. The Soviet Union was young and many, including Rodchenko were fired with revolutionary zeal and idealism. He believed that art should be functional, practical and without adornment. Many others swam in the same stream and arrived at pretty much the same place: Schwitters, El Lissitzky, van Doesburg, Bayer and Tschichold working in the West; Klutsis, Levinsky, Gan, and others working in the Soviet Union. Earlier, similar typefaces include Baltimore Geometric ML and Teutonia — both digitized by HiH Retrofonts.
