Emeritus is a blackletter font drawing its inspiration in all possible eras of Blackletters & Fraktur designs. In the early stage of the design process, Emeritus was thought like a modern reinterpretation of the rotunda style. We first started the design process by establishing the historical structure following the original ductus. We wanted to enrich this particular set of rotunda and blackletter font shape with some modern high contrast details in order to create a unique aesthetic.
We came up with those thin organic terminals connecting somehow to calligraphic ornament style. Those details give some quite interesting dancing rhythm to the font which make the letters look alive. With a mix of rounded rotunda inspired shapes and the sharpness of the BLZT style, Emeritus establishes itself as a classic for posters, movies or web design projects that need a strong gothic approach.
