Decora - Art Deco inspired typeface

  • Decora
  • This typeface was designed during the Type Design course took by James Clough.
    Decora is inspired by the Art Deco period and the typefaces of that time.
     
    From research to the sketches and the use of FontLab all the design process was then condensed in a little book.
     
    Designed to be a display typeface the family consist of two different versions, Decora Regular and Decora Ombra, both in all caps and with punctuation.
