Typeface - 2016

Ptera

Overview

Ptera borrows from the angular calligraphic hand-style of quadrata textura with a modern twist. It literally mixes blackletter and the concept of a calligraphic pen twist motion. Thus, variation in stroke width within the glyphs is achieved to form a hybrid blackletter typeface.

At the completion of this typeface, a 12-page type specimen book was produced.
