Mater Typeface

The project is about the creation
of a territorial identity system that expresses itself through typography.
The Mater typeface represents the global identity
of the ancient city of Matera, its history,
morphology and culture. The font becomes a set
of historical testimonies that represent the territory through the body type inspired by
the Byzantine and Baroque style but also
by the symbols of the rural culture and traditions.
