1. Friction 2.0 is the new and improved animated typeface based on Friction. It's is a distorted geometric typeface that intentionally puts emphasis on it's graphic appearance. The minimalistic core of the typeface is built around geometric shapes. Two secondary layers of graphic elements create more abstract letterforms. The many small moving parts create a fluttering, organic feeling.

    New features include;
    - Friction Core
    With a simple click on a check box in the control panel you can activate a minimal typeface that has the same fluttering animation as Friction Regular, but with all the secondary graphic elements animating off, leaving just the core of the characters.

    - Layer Separation
    By controlling the opacity on each of the 3 layers you can separate them to e.g. use the secondary layers as graphic debris in your design.

    - More Glyphs
    The font now holds 102 characters, numbers and symbols.

    - Static typeface
    The font has been built as an OTF font with the different layers acting as weights. This enables end users to have 3 colors in the final layered typeface.
