Savage

Savage is a geometric grotesque typeface that combines austere forms with eccentric elements which together make an unusual and charming face.

The typeface contains five straight styles from light to black, as well as variable characters.

Оскол

The clear geometric shape of letters is complicated by narrowing at the ends of the strokes.

Horizontal finials in round letters

The closed shapes of some letters make the type even more geometric.

Diagonal cuts of middle strokes
One of the key features of savage is its peculiar descenders and terminals.

The contrast in letters increases from light to bold styles.

Rage

The small eyes of lowercase glyphs give the type a retro style feel.

Some letters are particularly uncharacteristic of a geometric grotesque, for example, letters with descenders and diagonal strokes.

The proudly set leg of the Л
The bold tail of the ц

The capitals have an accentuated difference in width. In this, the typeface departs from modern trends and turns to the traditional proportions of renaissance antiquas.

The face includes three sets of numerals, as well as indices and fractions.

Tabular

Proportional

Old-style

A series of stylistic alternatives was created for Savage. For example, the one-part letter a is used as the main style, however the set includes a two-part version as well.

The typeface contains shapes of the modern Bulgarian Cyrillic alphabet. It is a very specific type of alphabet in which some letters have graphemes characteristic of italics, and for examples, the letters л and д have distinctive triangular forms. Bulgarians themselves call their writing the final phase of Cyrillic alphabet development and the bridge between Latin and Cyrillic alphabets.

Savage is beautiful and expressive, but not universal. It is a strong typeface with a bright character. However, if you find the right place for it, the “wild” face will become perfectly tame and will work well on websites, in books, on street signs and in corporate identity.
