Gitunik Font


Gitunik is a font taking inspired by the Տեխնիկա (Technica) typeface by Henrik Mnatsakanyan, one of the pioneers of Soviet Armenian typography. It is heavily influenced by Russian Constructivism and features a bold and blocky design.

Gitunik is the Armenian word for "a little scientist", a reference to the Gitutiun and Technica ("Science & Technology") magazine the logo of which featured Mnatsakanyan's work.

It was developed with Soviet Modernist art in mind while also making sure the blocky design are accessible for both digital and print projects. The font pairs best with minimalistic geometry elements as well as monospace and sans-slab fonts.
