Description

ASTRÆA TYPEFACE


Worked with a team of design students to create an original typeface that represents the architectural aesthetic of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth campus. The type includes optional snap-on serifs à la Walker by Matthew Carter. It was cut into wooden blocks on a CNC router for letterpress use and digitized for digital use.

Led by Steve Bowden and Mark Jamra from Maine College of Art.
