Briefing

The Typographic Creation class centers around the creation of alphabetic characters from different structural viewpoints. Knowledge and process of typographic creation are worked on, always with the final application in mind.

Proposal

Glissando starts from the intention of bringing typography that is used around classical music into contemporaneity. It experiments with curves and straight lines created by the quarter rest symbol.

Contribution

The result is an internal contrast typeface. It has both Regular and Heavy weights, always maintaining the same thickness along thin lines.

Production

The Glissando family will expand and add the Thin weight. It can be used for all kinds of communication purposes for classical music events, especially those occasions which allow for a large letter size.
