Title: Type in Trier
Abstract: While studying abroad in Trier, Germany, I was inspired to create a new typeface. I used the welcoming environment and rich architecture of Trier as underpinnings for a new relaxed font. As the oldest city in Germany, Trier offers an incredible mixture of architectural styles ― from ancient Roman to modern-day German. I will explain the evolution of the typeface as I worked to capture the spirit of Trier.
