Overview

D’arc is a typeface inspired by Joan of Arc, a female powerhouse.  The Typeface tells the story of her life in war until her death. D’arc is intended to be bold and strong, yet still, carry the delicate features of a woman.


One of the typeface’s main characteristics is the sharp slice through the letterforms; this, of course, was left behind by Joan’s sword. The letterforms are thick and bold, mimicking Joan’s armor while the small rectangular handles on some letterforms act like her sword. D’arc is intended to empower the female.
