Brassia is a typeface that was originally designed for teaching vector tracing. It was first prototyped during a workshop organized by the Velvetyne Type Foundry for the Fig. festival in Liège (Belgium), that took place in february 2019.
Brassia’s design is inspired by Solarpunk, a science fiction genre that looks towards a brighter future based on clean energy production, usually with a distinctive art-nouveau aesthetic. Its letters were drawn by taking a freestyle approach to the latin alphabet, intended to look ancient and futuristic at the same time, with a translation contrast that is typical of pen writing. Some of the letter's designs are also based on ancient and vernacular signs found in the city of Brussels.
