Bína Typeface is a typeface that is based on typefaces found in old
stitching books that my great-grandmother owned. The typeface is
designed to have as few cross stitches as possible and finally brought
to a more rounded shape, in direct contrast to the original font in the
cross stitching book. In place of decorative art and shapes, that have
been used in stitching over the centuries, the typeface contains emojis,
which could be considered as the expressive form of the modern
person. With this approach we find the font to be an interweaving
of two separate ages.
