Iceland is usually a modular square-shaped webfont by Victor Kharyk using a cold brutal character developed with all the intention to carry out well on screen starting from low resolutions. For this objective the strokes are deliberatly kept vertical and diagonal cuts possess a 45° angle, outlines are rounded.
Capabilities like wide proportions and generous x-height are introduced for far better legibility. Unconventional and simplified letterforms like k, f, r help readability at compact sizes. Though at display sizes they add a crisp and sharp impression.
