Textile Type System

  • The AfriSans typeface is core to the MFAA identity system. Drawing from the same inspiration as the building’s architecture, each letterform locks into the figures around it in the style of African textiles. 

  • To build a fully integrated system, every letterform had to be drawn and programmed twice: opening up and opening down. Each headline makes a uniquely tesselated Museum for African Art statement.
