Linguistica

Having been a student of anthropology, I have always had a special appreciation for the nuances of language and communication. Being a designer, I was interested in exploring the visual nuances of what languages sound like and what they communicate on a design spectrum. I chose Portuguese and Spanish as part of a series of posters. Portuguese invites a roundedness, enveloping and contained quality, ebbing and flowing into itself. Spanish inspires a louder attitude, spicier to the ear and more undulating to the eye with frequent peaks and valleys.
