Typography  I  Architecture  I   2014-2017

Font designed for Bolesłwa Chrobrego housing estate in Poznań, Poland, based on the form of the vitreo mosaic tiles originally present on the buildings' facades before their thermo-modernization. 

The project is an attempt at escaping the current infamous trends in prefabricated panel block renovation in Poland, involving the application of colourful patterns onto their facades.
The original mosaic elements were the starting point for the font design. The mosaic motif has also been used in the new balcony balustrade design.
