Description

Based on the slanted lettering on a watch fixer’s cart, by the renowned handlettering and signpainting artist Hoài Minh Phương, Finesse sports a poetic treatment that mimics the original artist’s style and character. A tribute to the craft-driven nature of Vietnamese typographic style, this typeface attempts to maintain as much personality as possible while adapting to the more adamant and less forgiving medium of digital font.

Finesse can be categorized as a script typeface, with the style similar to casual script lettering using a flat brush. It features a contrast between the thin & thick strokes, informed by the brush lettering technique. Uncommonly expanded from Oblique variation, Finesse now consists of 4 variations Roman, Italic, Flair and Future.

Republish Foundry

Republish is a self-initiated and exploratory project by Behalf Studio. The project seeks to investigate the typographic remnants, hidden in the apertures of urban landscape and archived materials, and revive them into digital typefaces.

The process of creating the digital incarnations often involves both research-driven and speculative design. Starting from the collection and study of vernacular typographic elements, we select the ones that give us ground to experiment with. We will then extrapolate from a few letters to create a completed working typeface, informed by visual research and cultural context.

The output of this project is a curated collection of free and open-source fonts, along with storytelling elements, created by and for Vietnamese people. This is our effort to return the unique but familiar aesthetics of local identity to the community.
