BACKGROUND 

Otrabanda Display is a tuscan serif typeface based off decorative fonts used to advertise my parents' traveling theater company in the 1960s. 


CHALLENGE

The bifurcated serifs were particularly challenging, but were crucial in order to preserve the character of the original letterforms that I drew inspiration from.  


SOLUTION 

Some of the most unwieldy letterforms ended up being the ones with the most character. The typically straight arms of the capital "E" became rounded and the lower case "k" sported an unusual counter. I intend to create a set of alternate glyphs for some of the letters I struggled with the most.
