Background

To call Alquimia a ‘typeface’ isn’t nearly enough, it’s an intricately beautiful language in itself. Expressive, versatile – and somehow both contemporary and retro at the same time. Alquimia takes some of its inspiration from symbols, elements and formulas used within the ancient art of alchemy. A classily simple letterform structure is brought to life with symbols, lines and geometric embellishments. Taking inspiration from the influential philosophical tradition of alchemy, combining classically simple structures with symbols, lines and shapes to create a beautifully expressive and visually stunning typeface, Alquimia is a power to behold.
