Curtis is a typeface that is based on broad nib calligraphy. It explores a free approach to contrast and plays with rotation of the tool. The aim of the typefamily is to suit two basic design approaches: one aiming for maximum contrast and the other aiming for harmony in design. While the display styles are very different from each other, the text styles work together in a more subtle way. This project shows all the important facets of a design project. It started with sketching and planning as every project starts. The next steps were calligraphy, digizing, reviewing, adjusting and correcting. All the process is documented in a book and parts of it can be seen on the type and media 2013 website. There is also a specimen booklet, a small and a big poster showing the typeface in use and showing possible applications.
