Arietta specimen book, 2009.

Aby Huynh - Arietta

Aby Huynh presents his final thesis typeface called Arietta trough a book and a poster. He’s graduate from the Type and Media MA program at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (Den Haag) and working between Vancouver and NYC.
Arietta is my first serious text face, it is intended for short subject and non-fiction books, the family consists of a transitional roman with multiple text italics that provide modulating degrees of stylistic contrast from the roman. Arietta Book has a serious, unobtrusive and reserved tone while the three italic companions each produce a distinct character and textural density. The process and specimen book shows the development and current status of the type family at the end of the Type and Media course, produced for the final examination.
The family explores the possibility of multiple companion italics, Arietta is under ongoing development. These specimens show the typeface at the end of the course (after 3 months of development), it will hopefully be (greatly) improved by the time it is released.
