Limited edition, custom hand lettering, letterpress printed card for Letterpress Christmas Card Exchange 2016.
"I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you." is a mantra which evolved from the ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness called Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono).

Playing around with the Kaba ornament and getting inspired by what Bram de Does created with it, I ended up with a square based layout, where patterns change as if they were a tide being affected by a tiny sort of windmill.

"Wet Paint" is a poster developed for "Mostra Aberta de Letrismo Contemporâneo", an exhibition from 18/07 to 08/08/2015 at Casa SinLogo in São Paulo. One of them was exhibited and they are available for sale at the Gallery.
The original inspiration were the signs made to identify surfaces that have been recently painted and need a warning. That combined with my personal desire to explore the washi tape as a tool for drawing letters, generated this poster, which has no paint involved, since the letters are built only with layers of tape.

This experiment started back in 2010, when playing with some orange rubber bands during a workshop. The first attempts to build letters and ornaments with the elastics were put together with tape around them. Later in 2015, when finding similar elastics for sale, this went one step further, by sewing the pieces together, exposing the beauty of the material. Experiment to be continued...

"At the time of project design, the WebFont technology started to become popular across internet, but they used only retail fonts and there was no record in the world of corporate typefaces designed for exclusive use on the Internet. As the largest site in Latin America, UOL felt the need to create a unique WebFont in order to enhance the identity of the portal. The new typography would be drawn parallel to the design of the project site and the briefing was to create a design that has a good balance between personality and readability by the immense amount of site users. The biggest challenges would be overcome some technical limitations of the recently launched WebFont technology, such as automatic replacement for system standard fonts when the user has very old versions of browsers, as well as optimize the text rendering for all browsers and operating systems.
A type family containing nine variations was created. The briefing provided initially fonts for display use, but during the development UOL team identified that typography also look good on the body text, and in the end adopted the new typography for the entire site content. To solve the technological problem, it used a metric compatible with Arial typeface, which was the source used in the old site design. Thus, during the implementation phase of the new graphic design the two fonts could coexist without causing many problems in viewing content, and not compromise navigation in older browsers. A year after the start of implementation, the new typeface was applied in 100% of portal texts and also in the offline parts such as corporate identity and advertising. This fostered an exclusive communication line and standardize all communication of UOL, and differentiate from other portals."
