This egyptian slate is fairly high contrast in its own right, and shows an old style with a new appeal in many ways, being created in 2008. The blocked out look it brings to the characters made me think about how such a look could be incorporated into a newer modern sans-serif to make something slick and unique with an old touch to a modern look.
Much like the Querist font, Alodie is another example of a modern sans-serif. I love the high contrast appeal again, and adding that classic look that serifs bring has brought something old back to life along this new style. Jazzing up young and aspiring typefaces to bring back an art-deco look from 100 years ago was challenging but worth it in every sense.
