Tassel Typeface

Systemic Type Design


Walked around ‘El Born’ district to document fragments or inputs which could lead to a systemic display font. On the front window of an old barber shop, I found some interesting Art Nouveau ornaments. After digitalising the different elements, shapes became letters and letters evolved into a whole new typeface.


Influenced by ‘Hotel Tassel’ x Victor Horta and Alphonse Mucha’s artwork, various specimens were designed to showcase the new ‘Tassel Font’.
