Moron is a distinctively idiosyncratic display typeface: a cute/nasty, old/new drawing of Victorian sans-serif letterforms, with some 1970s sausage fonts thrown in. Moron started life as a sans-serif redrawing of Nylon but developed into a unique typeface in its own right. It is loosely based on Victorian Tuscan and Grotesque type found in the churches and cemeteries of Glasgow. These letterforms originated before the dawn of modernism at a time when the Arts and Crafts Movement was flourishing. In this age of early mass production, the Victorians had a fascinating ability to balance functionality with ornamentation. As a result, the typography of that period retains a unique combination of industrial heft and romantic decoration.
