Postminimalism is an art term coined (as post-minimalism) by Robert Pincus-Witten in 1971 used in various artistic fields for work which is influenced by, or attempts to develop and go beyond, the aesthetic of minimalism. The expression is used specifically in relation to music and the visual arts, but can refer to any field using minimalism as a critical reference point. In music, “postminimalism” refers to music following minimal music.

About Antonym As we embarked on our new design, Antonym, we did not intend to create a type that could be easily grasped or placed, but rather something more elusive. It is an eclectic hybrid that defies easy classification. Partly a serif with asymmetrical wide thin slabs, partly a modulated sans, one of its defining features is missing serifs where one expects them: on curved letters, letters with horizontal strokes, and letters with a curved stroke. Others peculiarities include an a with an overhanging top stroke, a single-story g with a serif on top, narrowed M and a flattened diagonal stroke of the S with apertures so small it approaches an 8. These highly idiosyncratic details coexist with predictable sturdiness of a 19th-century-inspired slab serif, including wide proportions and low contrast, high x-height and short descenders. The unlikely alloy of styles feels fitting for the melting pot that is contemporary culture and is well-appointed for those cutting-edge projects where distinction is required. Antonym’s predisposition to thoughtful bespoke use does not preclude a more pedestrian application. It is unexpectedly attractive when used for text, as well as display setting, and can be economical when used for closely-leaded text at minuscule point sizes without appearing dense. We made a point of limiting the family to two weights, light and regular with their italics.
