Provenance Font

1 May 2013

Some experimental typography today in the studio. As part of his major project, an arts magazine entitled 'Provenance', final year student Michal Grazewicz has designed a typeface, called, appropriately enough, Provenance. 

The form is based around the simple geometry of a square, and despite the limitations this imposes on legibility in terms of copy, its ideal for the extremely large pointsizes and single glyphs he's planning to use in his layout.  The full magazine, in print and dps formats, will feature as part of Michal's exhibited work later this month.
