Grafema is a system of calligraphic typefaces which started off as handwritten works using a flat brush and Indian ink on paper. The main distinctive features in the two main cuts are the differing angles of the instrument and the natural texture formed by the brush strokes. The demo versions contain solely Cyrillic in its Bulgarian form, basic numerals and punctation. They are free for personal and commercial use.
Created as part of project Grafema – part of the official programme of Plovdiv European capital of culture 2019.
Stay tuned for the full Grafema type system which is in its final stages of development and coming really soon.
