My graduation project is a typographical interpretation resulting from my interest in typography as much in its historical forms as in its modern aesthetics. Scottish is a character built on the classic models from the Renaissance era but with a radical language. The family is composed of 3 different but complementary cuts: light, regular & bold, and their corresponding italics. The challenge of this design was to conciliate a baroque structure which includes various calligraphic angles with the stability of a simple digital look.
