Souls. Type Design and Irish Identity.

The subject of Irelands typographic ‘identity’ provides the inspiration for this inquiry. The combination of a complex historical context, the unusual position of the Irish Type as a ‘National Type’ and the subsequent questions raised by its existence led me to articulate a typographic response to the subject. The result of this process is Nib, a small, but growing, family of serif and sans serif text faces.
