Designed by Andrij Shevchenko
Arsenal is a semi-grotesque with traditional forms. It is primarily designed for body text and intended for professional visual communication. The special qualities of these letter shapes, such as subtle contrast modulation, articulate grace and expressivity. Arsenal's somewhat lyrical sentiment abides to the Ukrainian nature of the font. The main design features are the narrow proportions, that allow for economical typesetting, the moderate aperture and the observable contrast. These create some notable traits: Neutrality, clarity, and swiftness.
In 2011 this typeface by Andrijbecame a winner of the Ukrainian Type Design Competition Mystetsky Arsenal. The judges sought designs with three main criteria: Hitting the zeitgeist, being practical, and feeling Ukrainian. Andrij's winning entry was crowned with the name Arsenal, and made publicly available under the SIL Open Font License.
