Custom type design, 2017
Diccionario Lukumí-Español offers a modern perspective on the Lukumí language, which is used mainly by the Yoruba community in Cuba during Santería ceremonies. Lukumí is an hybrid language, mixed of Spanish and African Yoruba. Commissioned by the designer Laura-Issé Tusevo, I developed a custom version of my Everett typeface for the publication. Based on the most recurrent letters in Lukumí, the typeface plays with double letters and thin punctuation, creating surprising rhythms throughout the various definitions of the dictionary.
