? The initial intention to embark on an own typeface project was to combine certain aspects of type, a combination which I could not find in any of the available typefaces:
? Behind that concept two assumptions are worth considering. First, any of the various European alphabets are historically branches of a single tree, they might therefore be seen as one thing and, subsequently, crafted as one typeface. This is relevant for more scripts than Greek, Latin and Cyrillic. Second, any graphical sign, be it an astrological abbreviation, a musical clef or a public space toilet sign, is possibly to be written like a letter (rather than drawn using a template) and thus adjustable in style to a given ductus of the typeface. ? Although these aspects are neither novel nor Andron-specific they happen to be applied here to a basically classical type design on large scale for the very first time, as far as I know it.
? As a result any combination of signs in Andron will appear coherently instead of ?mixed?.
Today the typeface contains Gothic and Coptic besides Greek and Latin; Runes, Etruscan and Irish scripts, musical, Astronomical and meteorological characters alongside with telephones, wheelchairs, cocktail glasses, bus and hostelling sings and the like. The main fields of notations and signage andronised by now are the European alphabetical complex, (Latin) mediaeval abbreviations, typographical characters of various subjects (e.g. Biology, Astrology) and Public signs, how I do term all those public information and orientational pictograms and ideograms which alert us anywhere.
