A humanistic sans-serif typeface.
The typeface is inspired from the shapes of numbers which were in the street signs in Sao Paulo, Mexico city and Berlin in 2010.
I started from the numbers(1, 5 and 6) because most of my visual memory of type face of those trip was numbers in signs, then tried to apply characteristics to other letters.
The numbers had simple and retro futuristic shape, and I was interested in putting a bit of elegant feel to that.
The letters have low x-height, inscriptional proportion of uppercase and compact and spatial lowercase, and those terminals are cut perpendicularly.The lineal display style is made for a project of a restaurant identity in Barcelona.
The project is still on going by Raquel Quevedo.
