After graduating from Wydziale Grafiki ASP and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland, Mateusz Machalski has enjoyed a rather prolific career as a graphic designer and typographer. Co-founder of Borutta, a production studio and creative group that focuses on visual branding campaigns, Mateusz’s own work involves typography, visual branding, and corporate identity. He designed a family of 42 fonts exclusively for the Tupperware corporation, served as an art director for Warsawholic Magazine, and he also developed the visual identity for the Lech Wa??sa Solidarity Award.
The rich history of Poland holds a special place in Mateusz’s heart and his loyalty to his heritage is evidenced throughout his work. Mateusz contributed two fonts to Warsaw Types, a collaborative effort dedicated to letter sets that pay homage to Warsaw’s typographical history.
A beautiful example of Mateusz’s attention to historical detail can be found in Nocturne Serif, a geometric type design influenced by Warsaw’s architecture and lettering found on stone tablets that commemorate the victims of World War II.
Effortlessly balancing its classic inspiration with modern aesthetics, Nocturne Serif offers designers an elegant option for publishing projects, headlines, editorials, advertising layouts, corporate letterhead, branding, and web content. Nocturne Serif carries itself with a graceful air of prestige and sophistication. It demands a viewer’s immediate attention without duress, making it an excellent choice for educational texts, programs or menus for upscale events, and even wedding invitations.
Nocturne Serif is available in Extra Thin, Thin, ExtraLight, Light, Regular, Medium, SemiBold, Bold, ExtraBold, and Black, with corresponding italics for each. With more than 730 glyphs, it’s packed with features that include dignified small caps and oldstyle figures, numerators, denominators, standard ligatures, subscripts, and superscripts. Multilingual support extends to Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Romanian, Pan African Latin, and Basic Cyrillic for ample accessibility.
