“Another f*#king hip & trendy experimental grotesque…, but from 1927?!”
 
The project "Fadista" consists in a typeface, based on historical findings of the 20ies and 30ies. The main references were letterings from sheet music to the traditional portuguese fado created by the artist Stuart Carvalhais (1887–1961). The final font is the result of a meticulous analysis and interpretation of the characteristical graphic attributes of the original letters, as well as the rearrangement of the glyph palette into stylistic subgroups taking into consideration modern font standards.
 
This reinterpretation, in between historic reference and contemporary appearance is a discourse about aesthetics, trends and actuality.
