Young 20’s investigates and pays homage to the post-war social revolution of western design aesthetic of the roaring 1920’s. This font was inspired by recent travel to Napier, the self proclaimed Art Deco Capital of the world. The typefaces design elements reflect woman’s new found independence through the stroke contrast of the typeface, where bold masculinity contrasts with the delicate femininity of line work and the disconnection of both. The use of geometric shapes and structure emphasises and reflects the search for social order after the mass chaos of World War One. Decorative styles found in the geometric architecture of the era such as columns and pillars are incorporated into the formal construction of the typeface.
Young 20’s celebrates and embodies the elegance and refinement of the 1920’s and art deco era.
