The family features four fresh fonts that share foundational principles of construction yet complement each other—as sisters do—by celebrating their differences. Variations in contrast, weight, and design characteristics result in four distinct styles dubbed One through Four. This cool quartet contains no lowercase, asserting the family’s rightful place in the titling typography space.

Sisters: Retail Type Design

The process
Like many Laura's typefaces, Sisters was conceived as a custom lettering project—in this case, the design was crafted for the identity of an art exhibition at La Panera in Lleida. Laura initially drew only the limited character set the show required, but from the outset, she saw great potential for a fully developed type family based on her lettering concept. The initial source of inspiration was the lettering used in an old leaflet found at the Mercat dels Encants in Barcelona (the flea market).

The construction of letters is based on parts that makes it work as a modular typeface, that I emphasized as stencil

Sisters Typeface Family Origin

The family
The first member of Laura’s new family was, naturally, Sisters One. She later added contrast to produce Sisters Two, then equalized the weight of Sisters Two to create Sisters Three. To round out the group, Laura added a deco touch to Sisters Two, resulting in the festive but retro-elegant Sisters Four. Each Sister shares DNA with the other members of the family, just as human siblings do :).

The communication
Credit for the Sisters name goes to Eider Corral  and we couldn’t imagine a more fitting moniker for this little family. The spirited graphics on display in the Sisters “in use” section were designed by Gerard Joan, and the text is by Tamye Riggs. Together, we have created Sisters as an homage to all the creative women in this world. For the specimen you can find at Type-Ø-Tones site, I decided to pick up some female writers and her quotes and for the presentation in social media, we choose signers as Gerard is a musician as well.
