Crouwel's original idea was to create a simpler typeface for Cathode Ray Tube technology which was used for phototypesetting. Due to the very basic nature of the technology at the time, the typeface uses only vertical and horizontal lines. Klean Regular revisits the original typeface in an effort to make it more functional in modern times. While the type design deviates from the original it stays as true as possible to the "New Alphabet" letterforms.
