Broken Type 2
Fette Fraktur
This is a student project where we had to figure out a way how to promote broken typography.
My intention is to fix the broken image of the FRAKTUR (mainly because of the usage during the Nazi regime) I want the people to look at it differently, to pay more attention to the great details of the letter and to encourage them to start using it.
For that reason I developed a poster where the FRAKTUR letter F is literally broken (med. "fracture") in two half's and is being fixed by 2 medical bandage clips.

"BROKEN TYPEFACE IS FULL OF PREJUDICE REFERING TO THE NAZI REGIME, BEGIN THINKING ABOUT THE UNIQUE CHARACTER OF BROKEN TYPE WITH ITS GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL."
