Diaspora is a display font representing Italian immigration to Scotland between 1880 and 1920. Indeed, a diaspora emerged to such an extent that the Scot-Italian became recognisable as a fully fledged persona encompassing characteristics of both cultures. Therefore, Diaspora expresses the hybrid identities of Italians who immigrated to Scotland. This is translated by the addition of seven alternates for the letters A, E, M, N, T, U, V and W. To underline the concept of immigration by the means of type-design, the traditional and iconic aspects of lettering from both countries are emphasised. While having their own characteristics, Diaspora’s letters are designed on a single basis structure, helping to create a harmonious set. Each user can develop their own identity of the font using alternates. Diaspora is available on request through our type-foundry website: [](; or you can drop us an email to [] (


GoodEggs Grotesk is the institutional font of the homonymous type foundry. Designed with Alessandro Prepi, the type is once again the result of a deep research of the two designers. The project is inspired by the typeface Venus, released by Bauer, 1907-1914.
If on the one hand the font follows the characteristics of a grotesk Apolline and Alessandro had their own take of a grotesk adding the foundry's personnality and principles to it: serious with a touch of friendliness. Letters are designed following the counterparts which are rounded like an egg. Therefore all letters kept friendly curves while still having a modern/neutral grotesk style.


A cookbook gathering recipes and the stories behind them from all over the world. Sharing food and recipes seems to commune people together. This idea is translated into a visual object allowing the reader to discover a culture through its cuisine and directly from a native. Additionally, the book unfolds an array of statements. Stories in the books are generally shared by people away from home either permanently (migrants), temporarily (students) or indirectly (migrants’ children) showing how the migration of people enriches countries. The memories shared around the recipes shows how cuisine is a way to (re)connect to our roots and to feel like home. Food has the power to hold memories as is exemplified by Proust’s madeleine.


A modular display font for parties’ posters.


Designed with course mate Alessandro Prepi, the specimen is printed on newspaper paper on a tabloid format creating a direct connection with their research. Indeed, the two designers researched extensively through library archives, and newspapers were a focal point. The specimen presents the whole project, from the story it tells, to the technical parts of the font right through to examples of the font in use.
