Banco Económico Angola

For the new Angolan bank Banco Económico, Brandia Central decided to produce a custom typeface inspired by the idea of fingerprints. They approached us to see if we could design a typeface based on some basic Illustrator drawings.

Their goal was to get a typeface that could be used with minimum line spacing and that was double challenging, because we had to design all the letters but also think how to implement the accented characters without changing the height of the letters. The letters had to allow themselves to be cut or reduced so they could embrace the diacritics. The result is a very legible typeface with the desired personality of the brand.
