Process of designing the typeface Di Mare – Ksenia Belobrova

Läs om hur ett typsnitt blir till. Trevligt presenterat av Ksenia Belobrova.

I’ve been asked many times about process of designing typeface (Di Mare script as well). So I decided to tell a little about it.
An idea of this typeface came to my mind when I was in Rome. It was an amazing journey. I visited museums, walked around the city squinting in the sun, ate delicious italian food, admired ancient architecture. I was especially happy because those were the days when I decided to change my life. And one of the main steps was founding my own typefoundry. So when I came back I already had the idea of my first own project.
