Mekkanika Typography

by Patrick Branigan

Designer: Riccardo Sabatini

Mekkanika is a typeface inspired by old mechanics technical drawings, the steampunk visual world, and modern machinery, mixed and merged all together to form letters completely made by these elements, creating a mechanical look like typeface. Intricate and complex, these pieces are worth exploring for more than just a few moments. Outside of the characters themselves, the surrounding layouts, particularly in the posters, are unique and inspiring with beautiful color choices and elements such as shadows and noise. Combined with the typography, these final pieces are worth admiring in more than one way.
