In the streets of Spain I was influenced by ‘Textura’, a style of Blackletter type.

I researched further into Blackletter font families and used it as a starting point for a self initiated project.

From then on I started to create a contemporary take of Blackletter font to develop a new font, 'Letra Slate Black’.

'Letra Slate Black is a display font that incorporates traditional Blackletter features, with a contemporary spin.

The new font strikes the eye heavy with its vertical and clashing 45-degree angles.
