TAMAT Typeface
Typeface and miscellaneous
In 2012 we designed the logo for TAMAT, the Centre for Tapestry, Wall Art and Textile Arts in Tournai. This typogram was based on a design composition principle inspired from the tradition of thread workmanship. This first application made us want to design the full series of typographic characters in order to create a font.
To promote the font we did a specimen presenting a series of patterns composed with only its characters. This patterns were printed on fabric paper rolled around cardboard tubes that reminds the way fabrics are usually stocked. A printed sheet with the font presentation is attached to the tubes.
