PROJECT Lanka

“Lanka” is an exploration of stencil letters. Stencils are usually associated with industrial and sturdy shapes but what if they are influenced by broadnib calligraphy? Instead of chopping off the thin parts, in “Lanka” the thins do overlap to create unexpected shapes. Lanka mixes elegance with sturdiness, round with sharp, brush with broad nib: modern but odd. While the stencil styles keep all the attention, the text weights are sober humanistic workhorses suitable for longer pieces of text. The whole set is completed with a range of flourishes and alternates that gives more liveliness and variety to the design.
