A modern modular blackletter display typeface.
Sissi Display was developed during Fabian's half year-long sabbatical he took in Milano—Italy. "At some point, my ex-wife and I were watching the movie Sissi, with Romy Schneider from 1955. Inspired by the dresses and the furniture I started to randomly play around with modular shapes with a strong visual relation to this movie. At some point, I realized that the first letters I drew had some very interesting details. This kept me motivated to finish Sissi. I think what is interesting about this display typeface is, that the shapes are very beautiful and dangerous at the same time. It‘s a typeface which is challenging its readers and surprises with a lot of strange details."
