Peter 1710 is a typeface which aims to highlight the duality of pro-western and anti-western sentiment within Slavic cultural identity, and also to draw attention to the role westernisation plays within the erasure of culture. The typeface draws from old Slavonic forms and modern grotesque typefaces, creating characters with dissonant identities. Leaders have altered the Russian alphabet throughout its’ history, changing or deleting letters often during times of political turmoil and upheaval. The name, ‘Peter 1710’, is derived from the westernising changes made to the Russian Alph-abet in 1710 by the Tsar Peter the Great. I created both cyrillic and latin scripts for this typeface.
