Cartesian is a modular typeface that gets its namesake from Descartes’s cartesian coordinate plane. Cartesian is also inspired by Conway’s Game of Life and cellular automata. Each character is composed of cells that each can be considered either on or off (alive or dead.) The rigidity of its construction also lends itself to creating pixelated images using special characters of varying dot densities. 

The Cartesian family includes Cartesian Serif and Cartesian Sans Serif. Furthermore, both Cartesian Serif and Sans Serif letterforms feature two-to-one stroke contrast.
