30 Days of Stencil Type

During 2017 summer, my obsession with stencil type lead me to design few of them. I dedicated 2 hours each day to create a piece of lettering and learn a thing about the history of stencil typefaces.

Stencils were often used for labelling and titling architectural drawings.

Stencil letters played an important role in the work of early Modernists, especially those who trained as architects.

The result was variety of stencil typefaces that I had not visualized before as a stencil type. My goal is to turn some of these into usable typefaces.
