about sutturah

Sutturah is a display font intended for posters and display environments demanding high visual impact. Originating from an exploration of new, radical text patterns, the font combines highly detailed and constructed shapes with a script-flavouring. The design brings together varied influences – from gothic Fraktur to the ultrablack display, and high-contrast wood types. Sutturah is informal and irreverent in its visual style.

Its strong character goes beyond the accepted conventions of letter-shape construction, quickly catching the eye and surprising the reader. Its personality allows for the creation of stunning pieces of design without the need of any other elements – a single word in Sutturah can be worth a thousand images! Extra ligatures and swashes provide the designer even more possibilities to experiment with and add to the fun of using the typeface.

“On the one hand, it’s jovial, overstuffed, and good-natured. On the other, it’s got a taste for fast cars and loose women.”
for Typographica
“I love this! My highest compliment: envy.”
“Let me get the obvious out of the way. Sutturah […] isn’t versatile or a workhorse. It’s not ideal for setting small text or many of the other prized descriptors lavished on typeface designs.“
for Typographica
