Spanish ornament

 

A project exploring traditional Spanish lettering
and the idea of a Spanish typographic style, translating such characteristics to original designs.

One of the primary characteristics of Spanish typography, that which was responsible for creating a sense of ‘Spanish-ness’, was ornament.

ORNAMENT
noun

Detail used to beautify appearance.

This notion of ornament was explored through my designs – type for a series of Spanish words, each unique, ornate in its own way, and influenced by its meaning.
