Elligae is inspired by the natural brush strokes of the pen. It features slightly curved stems, rounded serifs, modest thick to thin strokes, and a diagonal axis, which give calligraphic and informal character to the text. Each letter was designed with a combination of smooth and dynamic movements based on the calligraphic movement. Elligae was designed to perform under display settings, where the strong horizontal movement in the forms keeps the overall feeling open and generous.
A type specimen book was created to display the Elligae typeface and how it can be used and experimented with in different ways to create typographic layouts and imagery.
