FS Renaissance

FS Renaissance is a new display stencil typeface collaboration with Monotype Creative Type Director Pedro Arilla. FS Renaissance is a single style font which explores the intersection between art and design. Each letter was crafted as a standalone piece of art, while working harmoniously together as a functioning typeface. The typeface is not a traditional stencil design: the cuts are not rigid but interactions that are hand crafted between each element, emphasising the idea of a typeface as a piece of art or sculpture. Arilla’s aim was to take the core DNA of Craig's work and apply it to a typographic base with a solid internal consistency, balanced with an external elegance. Pedro and Craig worked closely together to make sure the original concept was not compromised. To celebrate the launch of the font, Black created a series of handmade typographic sculptures that were photographed by Susan Castillo. The images encapsulate the spirit of the project, showcasing the letterforms as pieces of physical art.
