Retrotype is a clean, new and fresh perspective on the traditional Blackletter. In an attempt to combine humanist, cursive typefaces with Blackletter, I’ve created Retrotype.
It is the perfect modern display typeface that has a wide variety of line thicknesses. The typeface includes all upper and lower case letterforms as well as all the digits. Majority of the mostly-used signs and glyphs are also included.
The typeface contrasts well with humanist typefaces and also sans serif typefaces.
This is my first typeface, and with this project I’ve learned more about the anatomy of typefaces and the detail that goes into creating a typeface that is deceivingly simple.
