Naive Calligraphy

I’m by no means an expert in typography but I know what I like when I see it. Simula is a typeface made by Justin Sloane who has no formal training in designing typefaces, which he views as a strength, creating something that is “both functional and unexpected.”

This has such a European newspaper vibe that feels timeless but also pretty contemporary. The italics are so damn sexy. Incredible details with lots of little things that give it life. Well done Justin, now I need to find a project to use this in.
