  • Reference: Phaeton Typeface

    Phaeton Typeface was chosen as the started point for creating the word Gràcia, the main part of the proyect.
    The proportions and aesthetics of this font reflect in a certain way the district's appearence, simple but punctuated by the grace of the modernist style. Actually the result consists into a restyling of the beginning font.
