Statera 55

From 11points hand drawn letters to digital typeface

 

Statera 55

The Statera 55 is a sans-serif grotesque typeface. The process unfolded from a 11 point-size drawing (about 4mm) to emphasise constrains and errors brought with small size drawing. The challenge was to incorporate them into the final digital design.

 

Statera 55 is characterised by an important contrast between the different horizontal strokes and counter-shapes as well as cut junctions.
