Manhattan TypefaceThe Glasgow School of Art

Manhattan is a playful, modular typeface inspired by a brutalist resi­den­tial complex in Wroclaw, ironically called ‘Manhattan’ by the locals. This project celebrates some of the best of Polish architecture and consti­tutes a love letter to my home city. The curved strokes and condensed style are inspi­red by the facade of the buildings. The typeface in­cludes sets of stylistic alternates, ligatures, and nume­rals. Within the printed and inte­ra­ctive type spe­ci­mens, I describe the buildings’ history and the career of their architect, J. Grabowska-Hawrylak.
