A typeface inspired by American typefaces from the 1800s and the Art Deco-styled coffee shop I visit often in Des Moines, Iowa.
Combining a slab-serif, expanded typeface with ornate detailing brought challenging consideration to the legibility of the font. It’s used best for short, bold messages or an energetic initial cap.
Home blends contemporary sans-serif characters, created using negative space, with ornate mosaic patterns to form a decorative display font in the style of kitchen tiles. Each character is unique - set against four identical patterned tiles. This typeface is very versatile and functional insofar as that it has the potential to be used in a variety of diverse settings such as magazine article headings, pottery and ceramic prints, wall-hangings and shop signage.
