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.
