-OC Format Shards is a variable font design that violates -OC Format Sans Bd to create something more spontaneous, visceral and chaotic. Inspiration was taken from the classic experimental font Shatter designed by Vic Carless in 1973 which was used widely in British Punk graphics of the late 1970s.
-In contrast to the consistently parallel angles used to distort Shatter, the characters of -OC Format Shards have been sliced instinctively, quickly and freehand giving them and resulting text a less mechanical and more visceral appearance.
