ALT Maria Clara is Expanding - 4 New Weights Coming in Spring 2024

Family • Font Extension • Variable Typeface

ALT MariaClara is a font dedicated to the strong, confident, brave Filipina women who are breaking away from stereotypes and owning their identities. Named after Maria Clara, a fictional Filipina character who became a colonial figure—an embodiment of submissive, conservative demureness, a myth that allowed Spanish colonisers to continue to subjugate Filipina women—ALT MariaClara flips the narrative.

Drawing inspiration from the visual history of the Philippines, type designer Alli Cunanan incorporates sharp, intricate details in the original design of the Light weight of MC.

ALT MariaClara is a refined, striking display font built on a story of reclamation and empowerment.

By popular demand, we’ve recently expanded the ALT Maria Clara Latin language support so that ALT Maria Clara has evolved to embrace even more European languages with the addition of Latin A extended character sets to the original Basic Latin system. This expansion not only enhances its accessibility but also broadens its scope for creative expression. With its elegant and distinctive design, ALT Maria Clara continues to hold up as a striking display font built on a story of reclamation and empowerment.
