Giro typeface was developed as part of my completion of course project that took a year to be delivered. The whole project was about creating a visual identity to an independent record label Girodiscos and the idea of creating an institutional typeface came across my interesting in specializing in type design. The project was supervised by PHD Priscila Farias, a well know typography researcher in Brazil. Giro is the word in Portuguese for spin, the rotational movement made by a LP or CD while playing. The spin shape was the baseline design for all the typeface characters.
