NewBlackletter is a display typeface inspired by a signwriter’s and letter painter’s sample book in the nineteenth century. I was drawn to one piece of works in the chromolithograph sample that shows a highly decorative Blackletter surrounded by organic ornaments with striking red color because of the increasing popularity of advertising in the nineteenth. In my reinterpretation, NewBlackletter eliminated the complexity while still retaining the Blackletter’s characteristics and increasing its functionality, and establishing a unified standard. NewBlackletter is composed of geometrical shapes, and the circle specifies all the curve parts.
