Rumba
A three styles typeface family
Rumba is a typeface family based on handwriting and calligraphy and consists of three fonts: Rumba Small for texts, Rumba Large for headlines and Rumba Extra for words with a lettering flavour. The family is based on the idea of fonts that are interrelated depending on the differences in contrast, expressiveness and use, not on the classic range of weights. Designed specifically for all the latin languages what makes of Rumba a multilingual typeface.
Rumba was the project that Laura developed during her stay at the Postgraduate Type and Media en la KABK in The Hague. If you want to know more about the design process you can download the paper at TypeCulture.

The three styles of Rumba 
This video was created by Nueveojos to promote Rumba. The idea behind is to recreate and enjoy Rumba when used as the lettering for some typical dishes around the world.
