Designed by Ricardo Marcin and Erica Jung, Pieches is a display, hand display and wood type font published by PintassilgoPrints.
This typeface is inspired by the powerful political and social posters by Paul Peter Piech, a tireless artist and printer. Questioned about his endless energy and focus on work, he once said “I don’t want to sit around and be silent”.
Pieches is a linocut-looking font heavily loaded with interlocks, including vertical pairs of letters. There are alternates also, and not quite a few: four glyphs for each letter so countless expressive possibilities are open. Graphical elements are also included, for added wilderness.
This is a loud-speaking font for those who don’t want to be silent. Let’s shout!
