Shentox by Eduardo Manso

Type designer Eduardo Manso (opens in new tab) created contemporary typeface Shentox after a visit to London back in 2008. Inspired by the square font used on British car registration plates, Manso began working on his font immediately and has been developing it ever since.

"Despite the starting point being inspired by simple, everyday car plates, the font soon evolved into something fine and very rich in detail," he comments on MyFonts. "Even though the square genre is very restrictive, Shentox is a highly legible contemporary font with a full range of weights, useable not only as a display family for headlines and posters, but as a distinct, clean font family for branding and general editorial use."

Shentox is available to purchase from MyFonts (opens in new tab).
