Solntsevo Metro station lettering

Overview
Task:
to create lettering for the new station of the Moscow metro.

Solntsevo station of the Moscow Metro opened its doors to passengers on August 30, 2018.

Lettering for the station walls and recommendations on choosing materials and technologies for its fabrication were created at the studio.






A minimalist and friendly grotesque was chosen for the typeface. Geometry of the letters rhymes with the station’s primary architectural motif, a circle.
