For my final project whilst studying my MA degree in Bucharest I chose to investigate archaic letter shapes and create an alphabet inspired by them. After researching and digitalizing the letter form I begin to give shape to MoRo – Modern Romanian. The result was a display geometric typeface, with two weights. Since my source of inspiration was local and authentic I wanted to give the typeface an urban application.
The type could interact with the city of Bucharest by humorously describing bits of its personality. I chose verses from Romanian poets that could eider be written directly on the stairs of a public park or as urban piece of art, a cube, that could be placed on the streets of the city centre.
