PROJECT Laica Typeface

Starting from the relation between two common tools used to practice and sketch letterforms ― broad and pointed nib ― I balanced my shapes between these two approaches. A patchwork of shapes, having the tradition of calligraphy as starting point but with a contemporary appeal. Trying to place the right black spots free from any strict, philological approach, mixing two souls in one unique type family. “Laica Typeface” tries to be fresh yet balanced to cover the purpose of editorial uses.
