Strata is a text typeface inspired by sound and the connection between phonetics and meaning.

The typeface is based on Hermann Zapf’s Optima and is intended to be used in long bodies of text. Its connection to sound is two fold.
The aesthetic of strata is influenced by album covers from the Strata East record label, and the form of strata is intended to evoke the sound of the written word as it’s being read.
