About

A brisk backslope typeface, where the graphics of Comic Sans is combined with the dynamics of street art tags. Originally, the designer Denis Bashev came up with such a mix for the titling of the documentary Sasha from Russia — a movie about the standup comedian Alexander Nezlobin trying to win over America. The graphic idea didn’t make its way to this film — but eventually materialised as a font. In translating the initial vector outlines into a fully valid font file Denis was helped by the type designer Mikhail Strukov — the graduate from Ilya Ruderman’s course at BHSD and Frank Blokland’s class at Plantin Institute of Typography, designing custom typefaces since 2015 and collaborating with CSTM Fonts and Samarskaya & Partners agency.
