Plastic is a monospace variable font based on four master styles: Chain Black, Chain Thin, Simple Black and Simple Thin. The design of the “Chain” styles comes from the “Céčka fever”, a phenomenon of collecting C-shaped plastic hooks in the communist Czechoslovakia. Originally manufactured to be hanged as decorative chains in windows and doors (as they can be linked up in chains).
On the other hand, the “Simple” styles have no such feature and they are better suited for longer texts and small text sizes. The variable format enables interpolation between four extremes on two axis: stroke weight and length of serifs.
Plastic is a font with an array of styles and combinations that allows the user to freely select the weight and length of serifs according to individual needs.
