Shatter™ font family


Designed by Vic Carless in 1973
Shatter is an experimental font from Vic Carless, designed in 1973. Despite the centuries between the year of its creation and today, the font still has a distinctly modern feel. The figures look as though they broken up by pieces of glass, a result of the diagonal, fragmented pieces which make up the individual characters. The figures refuse to take on any definite form, making Shatter a very flexible, dynamic font. Shatter is best used for headlines in point sizes of 24 and larger.
