Hand Style By Juan Diego Velasco(@tatuajefalso)
It’s a busy Friday here at Zemoga and we are pumped to have one of our super talented designers from our Bogotá office as our guest handstyler. Juan Diego Velasco has this to say about his interesting almost “paper cut” like entry:
“I wanted to design a type made of a single line, drawn without lifting the pencil from the paper. I have always been interested in the way ligatures are created by REAL typographers. I thought this would be an easy approach, finding a way to connect all the glyphs together. Once I had the line drawn, I made it thicker and added some details to the terminations. Later, when I was inking, I decided to fill the eyes and bowls too, which, I think, gave the type more personality.”
Juan, I see a little Joan Miro in there, and I like it!
Have an amazing weekend!
