Panamericana

About the project

In Buenos Aires, every bus line has it’s unique design and lettering. Inspired by the signage of the bus 59, which crosses the Pan-American Highway, I designed a typeface.

The first sketches – I used a brush pen to sketch out the letters quickly. My experience is that using a brush pen is best, since you don’t get stuck in the details too much.

Drawing out the sketches – To draw out the final designs I used Glyphs: a very handy application for designing typefaces.

It’s time for testing the typeface – I’m currently drawing out a full charset for the western european languages. After testing it, I can hopefully make it available for download.
