Quiosco Display Font Family
Unlike the original Quiosco that was designed for text sizes with its softer touch and more organic shapes, the new Quiosco Display has a sharper feeling of materiality, as if its characters were carved in stone. Designer Cem Eskinazi was encouraged by Cyrus Highsmith to approach the project with a fresh pair of eyes. With its deep connections to Electra, Eskinazi dug into the recently released W. A. Dwiggins: a Life in Design to understand his work. This helped bridge the gap between Dwiggins original mindset and how his work influenced Highsmith, allowing Eskinazi to focus his interpretation of the Quiosco family independently, though the contrast between the inside and outside shapes as well as how the weight is distributed around them, remain the pillars of the family still deeply rooted in the ideas of Dwiggins.
