We rank both contemporary and historic typefaces according to established definitions and categories. If we attempt to describe Mikser in this way, we can say that it is a monolinear, dynamic, sans serif typeface with a uniform character width (in other words, it's monospaced), combining a vertical axis with distinctive modeling of the drawing. We thus acquire a tortuous mix, or rather "miks," which demands the creation of its own typeface category.
