Diploma project, ECAL 2018

in MASTER TYPE DESIGN

by Davide Tomatis


Metodo is a typeface that takes inspiration from a dusty German grotesk with a strong industrial look drawn at the beginning of the twentieth century. The main focus of the project was to keep the original rigidity and tension in its curves and at the same time to obtain a good texture on the page when used for running text. Although the source can lead back to a classical taste, the effort was to accomplish an image which doesn’t refer to a specific technology, giving Metodo a timeless rather than an outdated look. The typeface comes out in five weights, from light to heavy, with italics.
