Monique Ortman (GD ‘22) was awarded the TDC69 Certificate of Typographic Excellence: Typography by the Type Directors Club for ᎧᎹᎹ “Kamama” – Weavable Cherokee Syllabary Typeface. This typeface is inspired by and designed for use in Cherokee rivercane basket and mat weaving, as well as digitally. Kamama also features “weavable” storytelling glyphs from traditional stories. This typeface was developed while Ortman completed an MFA at VCFA, and the typeface aims to keep Cherokee language alive through traditional crafts and digitally.
