Type Electives Display Type, Spring 2023


by Mathew Prada

Typeface inspired in early 1800s slab serifs, merged with the essence of local ancient ruins (Puma Punku). The result is a very sturdy display font with high squareness, clear cuts and robust asymmetric serifs.

For most of the process, the challenge was to balance between neutral and expressive, trying to keep square shapes and sharpness but always thinking about realistic usability.
