Dignitas is a crisp and modern interpretation of the classical capitals inscribed in stone throughout the Roman empire, exemplified by the iconic inscription below Trajan’s Column in Rome. Using the design of Nova Augustea by Aldo Novarese as an initial inspiration, Christian Schwartz and Dino Sanchez revisited these varied sources to create a display typeface that interprets historical references with a modern sensibility. While classic Roman capitals have been revived many times over the years, Dignitas is unique in offering a lowercase alphabet and a surprising range of stylistic variety in a small family.
