Alumna typeface

• OverviewProcess

Task:
to create a display ribbon Antiqua typeface.

Alumna typeface is inspired by inscriptions on old marble slabs and works of Hermann Zapf. It is characterized by small difference between lowercase and uppercase letters, broad, almost monospace proportions, sharp strokes, slight old-stylishness and a mixture of straight and cursive shapes.

Alumna looks great in large headings and on botanical cards. It works especially well on beautiful paper textures.

The typeface includes alternative characters and cat figures.
