When Type and Sculpture Collide

Monotype has announced the release of FS Renaissance, a new display stencil typeface developed by Creative Type Director Pedro Arilla, in collaboration with lettering artist and designer Craig Black. FS Renaissance is a single style font which explores the intersection between art and design. Each letter was crafted as a standalone piece of art, while working together  as a functioning typeface. “When I first saw Craig’s design it was love at first sight,” said Arilla. “I can see a real fluidity, the letters look like they are dancing with the light.” Arilla’s aim was to take the core DNA of Craig’s work and apply it to a typographic base with a solid internal consistency, balanced with external elegance.


FS Renaissance family can be found in Mosaic, Monotype’s cloud-based font discovery, collaboration and management solution. It can also be licensed at MyFonts.com and Fonts.com.
