Kazimir font family is a debut on our site for two very devoted Russian designers – Yury Ostromentsky and Ilya Ruderman and their CSTM Type foundry. Both designers have solid education in the field of type design and graphics as well as years of experience and practice which include creating of new typefaces and Cyrillic versions of already existing ones. In 2014 they decided to establish their own label – the Moscow based CSTM Type foundry which by the look of their work could rapidly rise and establish itself as one of the best Eastern European ones – something we would like to wish to them!
Kazimir font family itself is an embodiment of a very original idea, a fine mix between the modern and the traditional. The inspiration behind the typeface comes from the Russian typography of the late 19th and the early 20th century. Even though today these typographic examples may seem strange and even somewhat naïve, they are still very important records of their time and certainly have their place nowadays too. Incorporating them in the present typographic tendencies and making them compatible to the ever growing modern demands is the main goal behind the creation of Kazimir font. And the end result is quite interesting – a typeface with pronounced retro look that will be very suitable for multiple purposes especially headlines and shorter texts.
There are many modern aspects of Kazimir font family, most notably – the vast amount of choices it provides. It comes in 5 weights – Light, Regular, Medium, Bold and Black with their respective Italics. Also, it provides two unique stylistic sets – the default Regular one that is quite contemporary and the more vintage Irregular one that offers more display characters. Among the other extras are case sensitive forms, ligatures and very interesting symbols that were last used in Russia in the beginning of the 20th century.
