Pictura is a serif typeface for 9-12 points, distinguished by asymmetric serifs, a tilted axis, and slow curves which bring warmth and rhythm to an otherwise rational design. Its personality borrows the cheeky seriousness of American editorial design circa 1960-1980.
Stephen is a designer and filmmaker based in the United States. He has long been fascinated by letters, and since designing his first font in 2018, fascination has become obsession. He enjoys following the threads of type history and uncovering the layers of meaning encoded within every typeface.
