IN THE MAKING
Azul Display was designed during the workshop "Diseño tipográfico para dummies" an intensive workshop instructed by the designer and typographer Edwin Moreira in June 2021. From the first session, he set us the ambitious challenge of designing 36 typographic signs of display character in just six clases of two hours in five weeks.
Throughout the workshop, I developed the lower case characters, some upper case exercises, and a couple of punctuation marks. Also, I designed key visuals to show the typography specimen and test Azul Display in action.
I really love how this first version of the typeface turned out, and although it still needs refinement, I'm excited to see what we accomplished in such a short time. I'll keep giving it love and working on the rest of the glyphs to complete the family. Follow me and hit the appreciation button to stay tuned for the official release.
Thanks to Edwin for his willingness to share his knowledge, and advice. His passion and enthusiasm for Typography design were evident in every session. Azul Display would not have been possible without his detailed feedback and supervision during the complete process, from the initial sketches until the final result.
