The artistic typeface category just welcomed an upgrade as creative agency Heimat Berlin searches history for inspiration. The new design is derived from the lettering that is graffitied on the Berlin Wall. The venture is no shallow one, but rather the brand intended to recognize the 30th anniversary of the barrier's demise.
The artistic typeface falls under an ongoing collaboration between Heimat Berlin and The Cultural Heirs — a not-for-profit street art association. Part of the 'If Walls Could Talk' project, the design of the typeface is an open-resource tool that allows "users [to] generate their own messages." Emphasis is put on "integration and violence prevention" in the interest of self-expression and equality.
