Inspired by one of the most imposing heritage of the late Roman empire, this typeface captures the essence and glory of the Diocletian’s palace. Emperor Diocletian built the palace in the turn of the 4th century AD on the picturesque south coast of the Illyrian province, todays Dalmatia region, Croatia. The ancient palace has become the old town of Split, bursting with lively cafes, restaurants, shops, hotels and apartments.
Diocletian typeface is designed to bring the confidence and fortune of the ancient empire to modern communication in a very elegant and gentle manner: Fortiter in re, suaviter in modo — Resolute in execution, gentle in manner.
