Diaspora Typeface

This is an example of the Grid layout. Diaspora is a display font representing Italian immigration to Scotland between 1880 and 1920. Indeed, a diaspora emerged to such an extent that the Scot-Italian became recognisable as a fully fledged persona encompassing characteristics of both cultures. Therefore, Diaspora expresses the hybrid identities of Italians who immigrated to Scotland. This is translated by the addition of seven alternates for the letters A, E, M, N, T, U, V and W. To underline the concept of immigration by the means of type-design, the traditional and iconic aspects of lettering from both countries are emphasised. While having their own characteristics, Diaspora’s letters are designed on a single basis structure, helping to create a harmonious set. Each user can develop their own identity of the font using alternates.
