An Art Deco stencil. Crisol is a stencil display typeface designed following the same basic design principles as Futura Black (Paul Renner, 1929) and Braggadocio (W.A. Woolley, 1930), both based on Art Deco lettering. Crisol uses the same idea but takes it to a different level by adding a five-width range and a more rational design approach. The five-width variation and greater consistency in letter shapes give Crisol a contemporary feel that distinguishes it from its predecessors and turns it into a powerful typographic tool for editorial use.
