Doctrine is the new typeface from VirusFonts. It is the first to be released by the foundry in three years and found its debut outing on the new David Bowie album The Next Day.
Doctrine is a sans-serif family which includes an agreeable text face and a more muscular stencil display face. From the obscure starting point of the North Korean national airline livery, Doctrine has grown to encompass a series of more mature typographic influences. By blending elements of twentieth-century neo-grotesque, humanist and geometric styles, Doctrine is at once universal and idiosyncratic. Including a vast array of ligatures and alternate characters in five weights ranging from thin to black, Doctrine is capable of handling a multitude of testing typographical situations.
