A Pair of Stencil Typefaces by Cyrus Highsmith
Stencils are something that Cyrus Highsmith has always liked. Making legible letters with just a few parts is fun, but the challenge comes in adhering to a strict system. Tick and Tock play the same game in different ways; they’re distinct typefaces that see themselves in each other. Tick was born on a book cover that Cyrus freely lettered and Tock became its more mechanical but equally cool cousin.
