General Idea is an all-caps, fixed-width display typeface based on twentieth century technical lettering tools and the work of artist Lawrence Weiner. The typeface name is both a nod to General Idea (1967–1994) — a collective which created conceptual image and language-based art, and whose work also intersects with typography and design — and the approach, which is intended as a loose interpretation of the work of Lawrence Weiner. General Idea has 96 glyphs with basic Latin characters, lining figures, punctuation, and symbols. License includes 1 style: Regular, with Desktop (OTF), Web (WOFF), and App (TTF) font formats for Print, Web, App, and Broadcast use. The Desktop (OTF) format is available to request/use free for self-initiated, non-profit, and cultural projects. Licensed fonts distributed via e-mail. EULA.
