The original idea for this serif typeface came about in 2018, when Fermin visited Zurich and encountered a hand-painted sign with very distinctive letter-shapes featuring highly elongated serifs with unusual proportions and contrast. This signage became the starting point of the project. Sakral keeps the handwritten, painted in this case, structure and general feel, and combines it with constructed details echoing the context where the sign was located — Zurich's old town. Medieval armoury imagery, such as knights, swords and battles, acted as source of inspiration for this typeface. The result is a vibrant and idiosyncratic typeface with a contemporary look and strong visual appeal.
Sakral won the Silver Award at the Latin American Design Awards 2023.
