A dedicated typeface was preapred as a part of the project. The final form of the font is based on Texture – a type of Blackletter characteristic to the 15th century Western Europe. Consequently, the font reflects a period of time when Memling created The Last Judgement. In order to increase the readability of the sign, the lettering was modified.


The sign was extended to the series of icons represent selected elements from the triptych and communicate them in a modern graphical language. This approach allowed an easy and accesible transfer of the elements to promotional tools such as: briefcases, mugs, bags, tickets, cards, t-shirts and other gadgets.
