Dala Moa Font Family
Dala Moa is a sans serif stencil typeface for display, sharing the proportions of its cousin Dala Floda. It takes the same inspiration – the erosion of letters on stones – but takes the idea one stage further with the removal of serifs, revealing basic structures. The forms and proportions of the romans come directly from Dala Floda, while the italic diverges into the upright humanist tradition. The lighter weights show the influence Jan Tschichold’s stencil experiments of the 1930s, and in particular his lesser-known display face Saskia released by Schelter & Giesecke.

Dala Floda Font Family
Dala Floda has its roots in the typefaces of the Renaissance but adds the twist of being a stencil letterform. Originally inspired by worn gravestone lettering and lettering on shipping crates, the elegance of the forms belies their everyday origins. First designed in 1997 for a logo, Dala Floda eventually became the headline typeface for the art magazine frieze in 2005. Since then the family has grown considerably, with the addition of an italic and a range of heavier weights, all the way up to a Fat. Its stencil form makes it very distinctive for headline use and especially well suited for logotypes.
