Royce is a new display typeface that links old and new to create a distinctly modern sensibility. Designed with high contrast, bold curves, and sharp angles, Royce has an editorial focus that pushes the role of type as image in it’s applications. Taking inspiration from classical Pistilli letterforms and modern curve linear faces, it’s letterforms have a unique hybridity that speaks to the world of fashion. Royce connects elements of classical penmanship with kinetic forms of modern typography to create momentum and flowing relations between letters. Ligatures emphasize the relational aesthetic that strives to create rythmn and flow between letters. These unique connections serve to emphasize the role of type in communicating the feel of words as they represent brands, persons, and various mechanisms of design.
