Arietta, specimen poster
final thesis typeface, KABK Type and Media Masters program, 2009

Arietta is my first serious text face, it is intended for short subject and non?fiction books, the family consists of a transitional roman with multiple text italics that provide modulating degrees of stylistic contrast from the roman. Arietta Book has a serious, unobtrusive and reserved tone while the three italic companions each produce a distinct character and textural density.

This specimen poster shows the status of the type family at the end of the Type and Media course, produced for the final examination. Size 100 x 210 cm.
