Artigo is an old-style inspired typeface system for text. It was inspired by the handwriting aspect of the first roman types but it intends to be a contemporary interpretation. Its abilities are in small text with personality. The italics capture a lot of its dynamic feeling even more expressive on the display version that stands as the most handwritten one. This project started at the University of Reading while attending the MA Typeface Design in 2011. The project grew since then and now supports Greek and Cyrillic. The greek counterpart won the second prize of the Granshan Awards in 2011.
