Maroque by Harding Penney

This geometric type design Maroque, created by designer and artist Harding Penny, was inspired by the forms and patters motifs found in Moroccan textiles, artwork and architecture. The designer comments on Behance: "The pattern motifs most specifically associated with this font design are those found in the textiles of the Maghreb or Berber people of North Africa, these have a kind of bold simplicity that appears decorative, detailed and grid-based."

Maroque is available to purchase from Creative Market.
