Actually, it is another geometric sans typeface, but this one really does have a unique personality. Its defining features include soft, chamfered edges, angular bowls and shoulders, angled/hexagonal terminals, and semi-hexagonal ink traps (in a nutshell).

Inspired by the mechanics of engineering – the humble nut and bolt in particular – Meccanica is a versatile typeface that will give your own typography a distinctive voice. Initially designed as a display typeface (perfect for headlines, logotype, branding and short runs of text), Meccanica also reads well as body copy – particularly at smaller point sizes.

So why describe it as “not another geometric sans”? Certainly Meccanica behaves like a geometric sans and sits in the same footprint as many popular sans-serifs out there, yet its modified DNA flattens out opposing bowls and shoulders. Its stems, crossbars, arms and legs retract to form chamfered, hexagonal terminals, and straight, acute-angled joints expand into semi-hexagonal ink traps that all help to give Meccanica a very distinctive aesthetic.
