ABC Laica is the result of a cruel methodology: A forced collaboration between the broad nib pen and the pointed nib pen, two common but very different drawing tools. Designer Alessio D’Ellena sketched early versions of the typeface by hand during his spare time as a student at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, which usually meant while slouching in uncomfortable armchairs at the airport or on rickety trams winding through the streets of Rome. ABC Laica’s patchwork of shapes are a playful retort to the tradition of calligraphy, reflecting today’s reality of cheap flights, constant hustle, and remote work. ABC Laica features chiseled transitions by default, that generate a pleasing visual rhythm and optical balance for text. And upon activating a Stylistic Set, ABC Laica can sport straight transitions at its joints and evoke a more simplified and elegant tone. Both the monospaced and proportional sub families come in Light, Book, Regular, Medium, and Bold weights with corresponding Italics.
