"Angst is a typeface inspired by the mounting frustration that occurs to everyone from time to time when things just don't seem to go right for them. It can be things as simple as running out of loo roll or being put on hold, but when enough of these problems occur, a bigger outburst can often be the outcome. As a metaphor for this, Angst is created from the inner mechanism of a kitchen cooking timer. Although not a particularly practical typeface, the playful nature of the letters lends itself to headers and is also great when used in conjunction with other, more legible typefaces."
