Astrid Stavro, the artistic director of Atlas Design, worked on a typeface about the city where she lives and works: Trieste. The Italian city has a dual personality, with architecture inspired by Austria (the closest neighbor) and a very Italian lifestyle.

The designer worked on a typeface that reflects this and uses type features to reflect this dual personality. The work was commissionned by It’s Nice That in partnership with Fontsmith, you can read more about it in this blog post.
