Creating a logotype and font

This was part of a hack week project to update a logotype so that it worked alongside a logo better than the current font used. My initial plan was to create a logotype to work with an existing logo. The corners of the font were created to exactly match the radius of the corners from within the logo and the weight of the stem to match the width of the logos shapes.

Initially the logo type was all that was required but I decided to create a simple A to Z charachter set. I also Created a version of the logotype in Cyrillic, as shown below.
