Franciscus is a new display serif typeface inspired by ancient and handwriting tradition interpreted through a contemporary touch.
We delved into the amazing world of the Franciscan libraries inside the Cathedral, we analysed the bibliographic archives, including the Cantico delle Creature and the frescoes of the Cathedral, in order to pinpoint some of the distinctive traits of the gothic style of the time.
We started from scratches made with pen and paper to define the raw version of a few letters, it helped us establishing a contact with the heritage of that handwriting tradition.
