Monasterio

Type Design

2022


Monasterio is a display type family interested in the tactile. Inspired by the sculptural works of Luiz Ortiz Monasterio and informed by Edward Catich’s Origin of the Serif, Monasterio currently consists of four styles intended for two ends of a typographer’s scale. Monasterio hopes to cover a wide spectrum of uses from the monumental to the intimate. This typeface was created as a final project for the Letterform Archive’s Type West program. 

Professors: Graham Bradley, James Edmondson. Special thanks: Graham Bradley, Lynne Yun, Kel Troughton, and the entire Letterform Archive Staff and Type West student body.
