Untitled Typeface

  • Specter (Uppercase, BETA) is an extreme display typeface based on the work by Jan van Krimpen. The project began with the idea to create a serif typeface for small sizes. With this idea in mind, I started a study on the work of Jan van Krimpen. This took me to the Meermanno museum, researching original drawings of the Romulus. During some interpretations sketches, the sharp serif’s came out. It ended up as Untitled, instead of small sizes the final form should be used for display. Untitled is available for licensing. Untitled is the result of a Letterstudio module at the KABK, Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
